Rupert has appeared at the Rainbow Trust’s Christmas carol concert before, and it’s great to see he was there again on 1 December 2022. I have no further details of his performance or anything, but found this delightful photo of him by Jon Buttle-Smith on Instagram, as well as a group photo with his fellow celebrities.
Rupert appears in this performance of “You Will Be Found” by the Dear Evan Hansen West End cast – backed by a full orchestra. This was part of ITV’s All Star Musicals, broadcast for the festive season, 2021.
Rupert and Doug Colling play father and son, Larry and Connor Murphy, in Dear Evan Hansen West End. They talk in this short video about the emotion involved in at last returning to the stage, after a 587-day break due to the pandemic. The video was shared on Twitter by the official @DEHWestEnd account.
There’s obviously a lot of love there!
The song “You Will Be Found” is performed in this video by the Dear Evan Hansen Broadway, North American Tour and West End companies – including some lovely glimpses of our Rupert. It is available on YouTube.
This holiday season, we may not be together, but YOU ARE NOT ALONE
The Dear Evan Hansen West End cast – including our beloved Rupert – is part of this socially distanced concert on thespie.com. Global digital tickets are available to buy online, which give you access for 7 days.
There is a brief clip of Rupert talking with castmate Jack Loxton, saying he’s looking forward to seeing people again without it being… strange. Then the DEH cast sing “Merry Christmas, Everyone”.
Thanks to Bunnysworld for the heads-up! ♥

Rupert, along with other members of the Dear Evan Hansen family, took part in this video supporting Mental Health Awareness Month.
There is also a link to an open letter you can sign, which asks world leaders to “protect and scale up mental health support in all COVID-19 responses”.

Rupert’s part in the script is: “Our world is not equipped to respond to this global mental health crisis. It wasn’t before the pandemic, and it isn’t now.”
You will be found.
Rupert appeared in the 20th Annual WhatsOnStage Awards Concert on Sunday 1 March 2020, along with the rest of the DEH West End cast, performing the song “You Will Be Found”. More info: article with link to ticket sales
