New Theatre Royal, Lincoln, looks to bring audiences back with a variety show thanking NHS staff
The management of the New Theatre Royal, Lincoln, is looking at a return to live performances in April.
The venue, which has been closed since March last year because of coronavirus restrictions, is planning a grand re-opening with a variety show as a thank you to NHS staff.
It is being planned for Friday, April 2, at 7.30pm.
A spokesman said: “We hope to open the doors to the public with a spectacular variety show in honour of the NHS and front line workers who have worked so hard throughout a truly heartbreaking year.”
All profits from the show will go to charity.
The acts will be announced soon but organisers say it will include international and local performers.
The variety show will be followed by an Easter pantomime at the venue.
The Jungle Book is due to be staged from April 10-18 and promises to be full of high-energy dance routines, songs and humour to make it a production for the entire family to enjoy.
It will star Lincoln audience favourite Chris Johnson, from CBBC’s Yonko, and Michelle Morris, of ITV’s The Knock.
Tickets for both productions are on sale now.
