UKTW - 25 years online
CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned general re-opening time. Some venues are showing on-line productions or outside productions - even a few covid safe internal ones and a number of tours and shows have been rescheduled for later in 2020 and throughout 2021. A few pantomimes may be possible but we await a relaxing of the rules for theatres from the Government.

What is currently on at Leeds Playhouse (formerly West Yorkshire Playhouse) (V977)

Carnival Messiah

Inspired by Handel's celebration of the story of Christ. Carnival Messiah uses the colourful, exuberant traditions of Trinidad carnival and folklore to create an electrifying stage musical. Singers, musicians and dances from around the world combine gospel, jazz, calypso and rock in a glorious fusion of contemporary and traditional music.
