They will share ideas about how to solve problems (like Maria), find the fun (until even the dullest job is a game), and tell you about a few of their favourite things. As Thursday 1st February 2018 is “Time to Talk day”  the theme for February’s show is 'Oh what’s the matter with me?!'; aiming to destigmatize mental illness. There will be a retiring collection for and 10% of profits will be donated to The Royal Theatrical Fund, who support theatre professionals in times of hardship due to illness (mental and physical).

“Rosie Williamson creates a wonderfully pleasant evening…No two shows are the same, performing different material each time with reworked lyrics for topical or comedic value…A hugely funny ‘How Do You Solve a Problem Like Self-loathing’ was also worked into the set with all three [performers] singing in harmony and taking solo lines, – the audience, meanwhile, was in stitches.” - Musical Theatre Review

“If you’re looking for some self-help and positivity in your life, look no further than to this cabaret gem.” - West End Wilma

Rosie Williamson
Singer and Actress, Rosie Williamson has long been compared to Mary Poppins, but outward appearances can be deceiving: She is, like most of us, far from practically perfect in every way. Rosie often takes hypothetical advice from the guru of musical theatre perfection, the superstar, the legend that is…Dame Julie Andrews. Whenever she is in a stew, she asks: “What Would Julie Do?”
Rosie founded her blog “What Would Julie Do? A Practically Perfect Guide to Living” in 2016; combining her passions of musical theatre, self-help and good humour, she shares her musings on living a happier, healthier life; inspired by Julie and other favourite things.

Join Rosie and friends for “What Would Julie Do? Live”, an evening of song, performed by rising and current musical theatre stars. They share stories and explain how show tunes can help make sense of our crazy lives. It promises to be a supercalifragilisticexpialidocious evening of musical theatre treats.

“What Would Julie Do? Live” aims to entertain as well as raise awareness about the importance of good mental health and wellbeing.
