12:00pm Tuesday 25th February 2014 in News
Former X Factor contestant Jade Ellis will take to the stage as part of a theatre production in aid of Breakthrough Breast Cancer next month.
Jade will perform for one night only during the interval of Grease at the Artsdepot in North Finchley, which aims to raise £10,000 for the charity.
Fundraiser Daniel Freedman and the Impact Theatre Company have teamed up for the show, which will run from Wednesday, March 19 to Saturday, March 22.
Mr Freedman said: “We have all experienced the devastating effects of cancer, and the committee is passionate about doing all we can to help wipe out this appalling and ruthless disease.
“The show promises to be amazing and every ticket sold will make a difference.”
Jade, who will perform during the show on Thursday, March 20, said: “I am really pleased to be supporting Breakthrough Breast Cancer. It’s a charity very close to my heart.”
The cast includes a breast cancer survivor who will share her story and make an appeal to the audience after each of the five performances.
