Hospices receive a live video stream from a London pantomime this Christmas

The Broadway Barking will be streaming performances of their successful Christmas pantomime ‘Cinderella’ to local hospices live this Christmas. Richard House and St Joseph’s Hospice will be accessing the stream for free so that their residents don’t miss out on this year’s panto.

This initiative is supported by DeadSocial and it is hoped that this project will roll out across the national network of hospices and hospice patient families via the umbrella organisations Together for Short Lives and the UK-wide charity, Help the Hospices.
Cinderella at the Broadway will stream performances during this festive season and they encourage any other interested hospices or nursing homes across the country to get in touch. Live streaming and other content, like rehearsals, workshops and live Q&A sessions have been a feature of the Autumn season at the Broadway. Chris Mellor, Interim Creative Producer says: I am is a passionate advocate of this technology as a means of reaching a much wider audience, both in the comfort of their own homes, but equally as powerfully in hospitals and hospices across the UK.

The Broadway has teamed up this year with Arc Theatre marrying all the traditional fun of pantomime, with the theatrical ingenuity and contemporary comment that has set Arc apart for 30 years. Director Carole Pluckrose, Artistic Director of Arc Theatre, heads a vital, young creative team including co-founder and Arc’s creative director Clifford Oliver, who has written this original Cinderella script; Phil Gostelow, who has written the score; choreographer Owen Smith; designer Ian Teague and lighting designer Chloe Kenward.
