The Roses Theatre to launch live streaming

Tewkesbury's leading arts centre, The Roses Theatre is set to pilot its first live streaming event this March, during the anticipated performance, I AM BEAST.

The Roses Theatre in Tewkesbury is gearing up to pilot its first live streaming event this March, marking an exciting development for the arts centre which will allow its productions to reach a wider audience than ever.

The pioneering mobile technology will be trialled for the first time on Thursday 2 March 2017 during Sparkle and Dark Theatre Company’s upcoming performance of I AM BEAST, a visually stunning show which features life-sized puppetry, live music and UV landscapes.

The live streaming has been made possible due to funding from Arts Council England, and will allow the Tewkesbury venue to film and broadcast into homes, schools and organisations across the world, through mobile devices and computers.

Speaking of its support, Phil Gibby from Arts Council England said: ‘We’re delighted to be supporting The Roses’ live streaming event. Digital technology is transforming the way we make, distribute, receive and exchange art, and the Arts Council is committed to supporting digital change and innovation across the arts and culture sector.’

Head of marketing at Roses Theatre, Caroline Lawrence added: ‘Our ability to live stream events will revolutionise the way in which we can reach audiences; from those who would find it difficult to attend in person, to those who are simply too far away geographically.

‘We are hugely excited to be one of the first theatres in the country to be able to offer live streaming and look forward to expanding this side of our business over the coming months and years.’
