Supporting Curve Theatre Leicester during the corona virus lockdown. How you can get involved.

Content taken from Curve’s email newsletter. We have really been enjoying and learning from the Curve In Conversation videos on YouTube hosted by Nikolai Foster. There are a few examples below.


Welcome to the weekly update from Curve. We hope this finds you well.

In this week’s edition we are inviting you to join in with our digital project designed to celebrate Leicester and everyone who lives in our city. Created in collaboration with award-winning Leicester poet Jess Green and director Emily Oulton, find out how you can get involved below.

In our regular features, Jamie Muscato (Tony in our recent production of West Side Story) will be answering your questions in today’s live Instagram Q&A, whilst our former Lady Bracknell Cathy Tyson also answers questions in this week’s Curve in Conversation.

We’re sharing a variety of content to support your homeschooling this week. Our Made at Curve education and resource packs offer a range of activities to inspire your teaching, as well as behind-the-scenes insights from the creative teams behind each show. Be sure to also check our The Show Must Go OnLINE hub weekly for even more great resources, including Bedtime Stories, Creative Commentaries and our Curve in Conversation interviews. Find out more at the bottom of this newsletter.

Our Associate Company and friends Bamboozle Theatre Company have launched a new lockdown project based on their show Moon Song. This inclusive, digital programme can be enjoyed by everyone, with lots of songs to learn and craft projects for the young ones and young at heart.

You can also learn with our friends at English Touring Opera, who are offering an array of operatic singing lessons and behind-the-insights on their YouTube channel.

As always, thank you to Leicester City Council, Arts Council England and to all of you for your ongoing support during this time.

With all good wishes,

Chris & Nikolai
