Denise Welch hosts a starry list of performers coming together for a filmed concert, We Need A Little Christmas, in support of Shelter & Crisis at Christmas. The concert will be filmed live at the Actors’ Church (St. Paul’s Church) in London’s Covent Garden and not only raises money for two charities, but also provides the opportunity to employ freelancers tod create a very magical event this festive season. This production was directed and staged by Michael Strassen, with musical direction by George Charter, production design by Andrew Exeter and produced by Thomas Hopkins & Michael Quinn for Ginger Quiff Media and Guy Chapman. We Need a Little Christmas begins streaming on Friday, Decmeber 18 at 7:00pm ET at https://www.broadwayondemand.com/not-live/409pnlN1yjzp-we-need-a-little-christmas-in-aid-of-shelter–crisis-at-christmas?channel=current-live-schedule
