Can you wait to be a star at Leon Theatreland naturally fast restaurant?

Imagine that, a free show with your pre-theatre dinner!

Presenter and comedian Alexander Armstrong (BBC Pointless, Armstrong and Miller), actress Helen George (Call the Midwife, Strictly Come Dancing) and actress Anna Shaffer (Harry Potter, Hollyoaks) will join LEON co-founder John Vincent at two auditions to hear the hopeful recruits belt out their favourite tunes and win a spot on the team.

LEON co-founder John Vincent said: “This brand new LEON is in the heart of the West End, and we want to provide a stage for West End hopefuls. You’ll see the team members preparing and serving naturally fast food and then taking the mic to sing a show tune. We want to help our new stars to get noticed and follow their dreams. Perhaps our guests will be served by tomorrow’s Miss Adelaide or Jean Valjean
