The 90-minute special is to be hosted by Michael Ball.
Stars such as Nicole Scherzinger, Kimberley Walsh, Melanie C and Myleene Klass are to take part in the programme, performing tracks from much-loved shows such as Jesus Christ Superstar, Cats and Evita.
There will also be interviews with figures such as Simon Cowell, Sir Michael Caine and Sir Alex Ferguson.
Andrew Lloyd Webber joked: "I said I would only do it if it wasn't some po-faced tribute to a bloke who's about to collect his bus pass. I still don't know what I'm letting myself in for, especially as Simon Cowell has filmed an interview for the show."
His new musical focuses on the Profumo affair, which was a huge scandal that rocked the UK government in the early 1960s.
Andrew Lloyd Webber: 40 Musical Years is to be screened on UTV this Easter Sunday.
