AFTER a successful year of shows, Unity Theatre looks
forward to an eventful start to the new year, with a major capital redevelopment
taking place, from January to May 2017. During this time, Unity embarks on its
'Out of Space' season, which reaches out of the theatre and into
the community, with a selection of bold and reactive shows.
Artistic Director and CEO, Matthew Linley, explains:- "We're delighted to
be presenting a season of shows across several venues in the Merseyside area
between January and April next year. While our own theatre undergoes a
transformation, we want to take the opportunity to use some of the fantastic
venues around the city, new and old, conventional and unconventional. We will
then reopen, in May 2017, with our summer season, and we can't wait to show off
our new spaces."
The 'Out of Space' season will draw on Unity Theatre's aims to
collaborate and encourage new and burgeoning talent, engage families and
individuals from economically disadvantaged areas, tackle current issues and say
the important things that would otherwise go unsaid.
Before the builders come in, there's still the chance to catch popular Christmas
show:- 'Little Red and the Big Bad Wolf...' That is before it
wraps up, on 7 January 2017. The family friendly Christmas show, perfect for
ages 5+ and their families explores the thrill of adventure and unknown versus
the safety and familiarity of the path and how irresistible straying can be, as
well as the tension between mankind and nature.
