There’s no doubt that the last few months have been incredibly difficult for everybody and in tough times it is often live entertainment, arts and culture that will provide a much needed ray of light in so many people’s lives. Lockdown, sadly, curtailed many of our plans for this year but the team at the theatre are a tenacious, creative and determined bunch and we’re thrilled to be working on two very exciting projects this Autumn.
We’ve teamed up with the Lawrence Batley Theatre, Huddersfield and The Barn Theatre, Cirencester to co-produce an online adaptation of Jonathan Coes’ critically acclaimed novel What a Carve Up! Directed by Tamara Harvey (Home, I’m Darling), the show is filled with murder, mayhem and madness and will be available from Saturday 31 October and throughout Novmber. This murder mystery turns a satirical eye on what it is like to be a member of one of the most corrupt, powerful and toxic families in the country. Find out more about this online digital experience and book your ticket HERE.
Our Creative Learning team are also going to provide some exciting workshops for people aged 9 -16 years throughout September and October. For the first time in 5 months these workshops will take place in person, no screens, no annoying zoom meeting, it will be a face to face and exceedingly fun experience. Entitled ‘Reconnect’ these workshops will see participants enjoy technical theatre, experience model box building and devise brand new pieces of theatre. All of the workshops will be delivered in accordance to the latest Covid-19 guidance and you can discover all you need to know by taking a look HERE.
Our ticket refund process for Jack and the Beanstalk and Autumn Season also continues and we’d like to say thank you for your kind patience whilst we work through the refunds.
The first tentative steps to reconnect with you, our audience, are finally here. It has been too long, but nothing would make us happier than if you could join us in some way this Autumn.
