An update from Eastern Angles'
Eastern Angles remains safe and well, you’ll be pleased to hear. Nearly half the staff have been vaccinated, we’ve moved into our new Eastern Angles Centre, and are now transforming our Sir John Mills Theatre into a cabaret style auditorium. It’s always been our aim to reopen with our panto alternative, Sam Snape and the Curse of the Chillesford Chough postponed from Christmas to … ah, that begs the question, when?
The Government’s recently announced ‘roadmap’, as it stands at the time of writing, will allow us to potentially open to audiences from May 17 onwards. We’ve not yet fixed our re-opening date but when we do we believe we can offer a safe experience for those who are desperate for live theatre. With social distancing, no more than 50% capacity, no seating at higher levels, bubbled booking, drinks delivered to your tables and radio mics to reduce projection, we will be following all the recommended advice. And our new Eastern Angles Centre allows one-way systems for arrival and departure.
Even with all this in place there may be those of you still unsure about visiting the theatre, so we plan to broadcast ten live-streamed performances produced on new high-quality equipment, with trained staff and under the direction of Warehouse Digital, a local firm with great experience.
We’re excited to welcome you back with Sam Snape inthis great film-noir/ghost story style spoof panto from Julian Harries! Dates will be announced in the coming weeks. Get ready for sharp suits, fast cars and faster birds that are the ghost guardians of the coast. Play it, play it again, Sam!
