To celebrate World Theatre Day (today, Friday 27 March 2020), Pentabus Theatre (national rural theatre company, based in Ludlow) today announced that they are going to release recordings of their past shows on their website and social media channels to be streamed for free.
These will remain live for the next three months, and will be released weekly on a Friday at 2pm for anyone to access.
The first production to be released was “Here I Belong” by Matt Hartley today, with other shows to follow including “Crossings” by Deirdre Kinahan and “Each Slow Dusk” by Rory Mullarkey.
The recordings will be accompanied by social media Q&As with cast and creative teams from the productions, details of which will be announced via social media.
Pentabus were the first company to live stream theatre directly from village halls into homes and community spaces across the world. All recordings are high quality and filmed during live streams or as part of a live capture over the past five years.
They realise that a lot of their audience will be stuck in their houses in rural communities and want to give everyone the chance to go to the virtual village hall and experience excellent theatre from the comfort of their own home.
