When COVID-19 forced us to close our doors, we looked for new and creative ways to reach our patrons. Innovation, creativity, diversity, and adaptability are cornerstones of our theatre. We are committed to reaching an audience, even if it is not within the theatre itself.
What presented itself was an opportunity. To try something new, to do something different, to share our stage with a broader (global) stage. And to do it live. You heard us. Live.
Beginning September 19, 2020 we will be staging a virtual performance of Wuthering Heights | 嵐ヶ丘 over the course of 3 days. Emily Brontë couldn’t have dreamed what we have in store: we are devising not only the show, but also novel methods of presenting it, creating a hybrid experience of live theatre and livestreaming. In short: we are not just going to point a camera at a stage and call it a day. No matter what happens, we promise it will be more interesting than staring across the foggy moors for hours on end. We hope you will join us, from your living rooms, from your dens, from your kitchens, from your phones. We are opening the world of our theatre to you at home!
Please reserve your virtual seats for what promises to be an event that combines our take on a classic, some interesting feats of technology, and the thrill of a live performance at home. Please join us. Support the theatre. Support our talent. Support the arts in a time when many of us miss that connection the most. At the least, come see how we fare at performing live!
Are you ready?
We are getting ready for you.
