The Lockdown Variety Show
During these difficult times theatre and the arts are suffering. Theatres are closed and performance venues don’t know when they can reopen. Professional and amateur shows have had to be cancelled or postponed. Sparkle have had their own performance of Much Ado About Nothing postponed to next year but we are staying positive.
Over the past few weeks our members (and some friends) have been recording performances as part of a variety show which premiers tonight (19th June 2020) at 6pm. All participants have had to source their own costumes, props and set for their performances. We have had contributions from our wonderful patron, Liz Webster, and a friend of Sparkle Theatre, international ventriloquist Shane West as well as other friends of Sparkle.
Sit back, grab the popcorn, and we hope you enjoy our little show (we expected a show about 40 minutes long – it is actually a full show at 1hr 20 mins).
