It's Curtains for Theatre Without You: How to get involved
Our special campaign launches today!
We've launched the Curtains for Theatre without You campaign – but we want to hear from YOU!
The aim is to celebrate both spaces that are able to open as well as those that, for a plethora of reasons such as local restrictions or financial feasibility, remain closed.
Post your quick tweets/ videos on Instagram or Twitter – we want to know:
- What does theatre mean to you?
- What is the future of theatre for you?
And then give a quick shout-out to the Curtains for Theatre Without You page using the hashtag #CurtainsWithoutYou and tag WhatsOnStage.
Want more info on how to get involved? Drop us an email - we'd love to hear from you! [email protected]
If you want to use any images then you can access them here!
We'll be posting some examples below as they come in – you can read our interview with Sonia Friedman below as well:
"It really would be curtains for our theatres without your support. We can't wait to share our first ever live streamed performance on 18 December with The Nutcracker at The REP - do join us and help support the very best of Birmingham" – Sean Foley, artistic director of the Birmingham Rep.
People are getting vaccinated RIGHT NOW, this minute! Theatres are slowly but surely REOPENING! There's certainly a light at the end of the tunnel, but without YOU we won't get there. Follow @WhatsOnStage's initiative to support theatre in all its forms during this final push... pic.twitter.com/UpGx1Wfq92— David Hunter (@thedavidhunter) December 8, 2020

Theatre is returning. We've been waiting a long time and know you have too. Without our Audience, there is no Theatre industry. Be it live Theatre, watching streams from home, downloading albums...— Nadim Naaman (@NadimNaaman) December 8, 2020
We need you. We need our Audience. Because it's #CurtainsWithoutYou. pic.twitter.com/6dFKefRn03
