Stay Creative with Chelsea Theatre
As with every other theatre across the country, our beautiful brand new auditorium will remain closed for the foreseeable future.
However, there are a few ways you can get involved with our plans for a Technological Theatre, as well as many ways to get your creative fix while our doors are closed.
Firstly, we are looking for volunteers who want to share stories with professional writers as part of a community-wide story-telling project. More information will be released in our newsletter in the coming weeks, but if you want to found out more information and register your interest, then please drop us an email on firstname.lastname@example.org.
While we are closed, why not check out some of these incredible venues offering up their archived performances online.
The country’s leading public theatre will be putting some of its back-catalogue online each week, including One Man, Two Guvnors, Twelfth Night, and Treasure Island. They stream live on YouTube at 7:30pm every Thursday, and are available to watch at any point for 7 days after. Bring the Southbank onto your sofa this lockdown.
The Globe, known for its traditional production of Shakespeare’s plays, has put 40 productions online. 6 of these were performed at the Globe itself, and 34 of them were part of their Globe to Globe series. These productions are World Class, so make sure you check them out.
Sadler’s Wells is London’s leading theatre for dance performance, and they are launching their very own Digital Stage. This project will not only feature performances available online, but Sadler’s are also offering free online workshops. So whether you’re just missing your Strictly fix, or you’ve fancied trying some contemporary dance but haven’t gotten round to it, this might be the chance for you!
