Despite The New Theatre Royal undergoing it’s major redevelopment at the moment there is still much going on (as well as the cafe being open) including the upcoming Little Theatres art exhibition. The theatre wants to give the leaflet stands in the Dress Circle bar a makeover and would like people of all ages and artistic ability to get creative. The theatre would like you to create miniature scenes to fill one of the 44 leaflet stands, depicting the history of the theatre, or just what you love about the theatre. You can even get into the Dickens spirit and create your favourite scene of a Dickens classic. The only limitations are the space, so here are the dimensions to work within:
Height: 18.5 cm
You can visit the Box office to pick up a leaflet stand to take home to work with (you will be required to leave contact details). You can also design stage curtains for your piece, or other backdrops of roughly A5 sizing if you wish. All miniature scenes must be set up on Monday 6th February by popping into the theatre on the day with your scenes ready to place or with the leaflet stand you collected.
This exhibition will take place on the 7th February and is just one of the many events happening on the day in celebration of Charles Dickens 200th birthday.
For more information and to register your interest, please email Cat as soon as possible at firstname.lastname@example.org. All entrants must register their interest by 10pm on Monday 30 January so get involved quick!
