REACH


 

REACH is a three year partnership project between us and ARC, Stockton Arts Centre to tour high quality contemporary theatre to 9 venues in North East England. Funded by Arts Council England’s Strategic Touring Programme, the project will act as a catalyst to bring work to less-toured areas of the region.

 


 

About

Audiences in the North East will have the chance to experience some of the best contemporary theatre thanks to an investment of £862,430 from Arts Council England’s Strategic Touring Programme. Through the presentation of more than 150 performances at nine venues in the region, the REACH project will attract new audiences and reach communities who would not usually be able to access this type of work at their local venue.

 

REACH is a three year partnership project between us and ARC, Stockton Arts Centre to tour high quality contemporary theatre to 9 venues in North East England.

 

Funded by Arts Council England’s Strategic Touring Programme, the project will act as a catalyst to bring work to areas of the region that have historically hosted very little touring theatre. The venues that are part of the project are:

 

Alnwick Playhouse

Arts Centre Washington

Bishop Auckland Town Hall

Customs House, South Shields

Queen’s Hall Arts Centre Hexham

Hartlepool Town Hall Theatre

Saltburn Arts Theatre

Seaton Delaval Arts Centre

 

Over the next 3 years, the project will include tried and tested shows from respected names such as Unlimited Theatre, Kirsty Housley, Stan’s Cafe and Analogue, alongside new commissions from Tangled Feet, Chris Thorpe and Hannah Jane Walker, and Theatre Alibi.
