Tobacco Factory Theatres has announced some online shows and get-involved opportunities through February and March 2021.

From 19 – 21 February, the theatre will be co-presenting with Circomedia the Best of BE at HOME FESTIVAL, which will feature artists from Spain, Belgium and the UK. This will see the streaming of two online shows – Recall and Shan Shui.

Saturday 27 February will see comedian Laura Lexx taking to the Zoom with Knee Jerk, which will now stream live online instead of at the theatre.

Several Artist Masterclasses will also be running on a Pay What You Choose basis. The first three events will be led by actor Katy Stephens, theatre maker, producer and performer Josie Dale-Jones and dancer and choreographer Läila Diallo (pictured).

Tobacco Factory Theatres’ Get Involved programme is back this March, with weekly online Young Theatre Maker sessions for children and young people with sessions for those from 7 years of age right through to 19.

The Factory Singers choir will be welcoming newcomers to their online rehearsals for the next seven weeks. No singing experience or audition is necessary, it’s all about the joy, passion and groove.

Executive Director, Tobacco Factory Theatres, David Dewhurst says: “Though our theatres and spaces remain closed, our desire to connect is stronger than ever. Our theatre started as an experiment, and we continue to believe in experimentation. That’s why we’re exploring new ways for audiences, young people and artists to make connections with theatre online, even when we can’t be physically together.”
