CORONAVIRUS:All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and look like staying closed until March 2021 with the exception of a few, patchy, openings (and subsequent closures) towards the end of 2020. Some open-air, drive-in venues have been opened for periods and many shows are now streaming on-line. Sadly, some venues and shows may not survive. We are updating our listings as much as possible to reflect the changes as they are reported.
A season of new musicals Aria Entertainment's thriving new musical theatre festival, From Page To Stage returns for its 6th year, with submissions now open. This year's festival will take place in September at Southwark Playhouse, and follows the hugely successful 2017 festival, which took place at The Other Palace, and received over 300 submissions from across the UK and internationally. From Page To Stage 2018 will showcase each step of how an original musical is developed, from a song-writing showcase, to full staged readings of new musicals. There will also be a showcase evening, which will feature sections of at least four different shows in development with a repertory cast. Alongside the 2018 Festival at Southwark Playhouse, FPTS will launch a new venture, From Page To Stage North West in partnership with Aria Entertainment's northern home, the Hope Mill Theatre, which was founded by Joseph Houston and William Whelton. From Page To Stage North West is an exciting and unique opportunity offering one writing team a full writing commission of an original musical. The writing team selected at the end of this process will be fully commissioned and receive a workshop of the new musical in 2019, with the intention to stage the piece fully in 2020 at the Hope Mill Theatre. The team will be selected through a series of pitching days.Performers Felix Mosse, Barry James, Beverley Klein, Jessie May, Rebecca Bolton, Gavin James, Nicholas Mclean, Cornelius Clarke, Jake Small, Genevieve Nicole, Ashley Samuels, Michael Storrs, Janet Kumah, Laura Mansell, Josie Kemp, Robbie Shepherd-White, Miles Western, Fred Haig, Natalie Dunne, Rose Shalloo, Michele Moran, Gary Tushaw, Lauren Lebowitz, Sam Peggs, Dale Rapley, Simon Oskarsson, Kai Spellman, Lottie Johnson, Ashley Knight, Simbi Akande, Rosemary Ashe, David Bardsley, Will Carey, Adam Linstead, Emma Salvo, Lawrence Smith, Benjamin Stratton..
