Kate Garraway is set to take on an epic theatrical challenge for Global's Make Some Noise Day.

The Smooth Radio presenter will take on five roles in five London shows in just one day, in Kate Garraway's West End Takeover, all to raise money for our charity, Global’s Make Some Noise.

In a race against time, Kate will attempt to appear in five massive West End productions on Thursday, October 10.

She will start her marathon challenge as a cocktail-maker in one of London’s newest shows, BIG The Musical, at the Dominion Theatre.

This will be followed by an appearance as a parent in the finale of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s School of Rock The Musical. From there, Kate will dash to The Hippodrome for London’s hottest production, Magic Mike Live, before joining Joe Sugg and the cast of the romantic musical comedy Waitress at the Adelphi Theatre.

Finally, Kate will take to the stage as a wedding guest in one of the West End’s most successful productions, MAMMA MIA!, at the Novello Theatre.

Created by Global, the Media & Entertainment group, Global’s Make Some Noise funds projects and small charities across the UK which support disadvantaged children, young people and their families.

On Friday October 11, the day after Kate’s challenge, Global will unite all its radio brands – Smooth, Classic FM, Heart, Capital, LBC, Radio X, Capital XTRA and Gold – for Global’s Make Some Noise Day, raising money to help young people living with illness, disability or lack of opportunity.

Kate said of her challenge: “For Global’s Make Some Noise last year, I was fortunate to appear in MAMMA MIA! and I loved it.

"Singing, acting and dancing don’t come naturally to me – just ask my Strictly dance partner, Anton du Beke – so to take on five of London’s biggest and best-loved shows in one day is going to be a real challenge.

"Thank you in advance to the West End audiences for putting up with my performances! I’m so proud to be doing this for Global’s Make Some Noise, which provides a true lifeline to thousands of young people across the UK each day.

"I’m also hugely grateful to the cast and crew of these five shows, for their support in raising as much money as possible. It’ll be a real team effort, for children who truly need our help the most.”
