    Lockdown 2.0: The shows go on

    Lockdown 2.0: The shows go on

    We’re just over halfway through lockdown 2.0 but this time it hasn’t put a full stop on the theatre scene in St Albans. Just a few days into the restrictions we were able to sit back and watch Company of Ten’s show Relatively Speaking which was filmed beforehand in front of an audience and streamed nightly.







    Emily from Blackbox theatre joins us on this weeks show to tell us about their lockdown friendly project “The Rehersal Room”. Get in touch with the team here if you want to participate this month or in the future.







    There’s also a lot to look forward to as the festive period approaches. Company of Ten is planning to take us on a journey to The Secret Garden (live streamed and in person) and Maltings Theatre with Alban Arena is going on a flight of fancy with Peter Pan.
