Future Looks Bright for Court Theatre
The plight of the performing arts industry and its venues has been well documented since the pandemic began, so Tring Living caught up with Ian Gower, Artistic Director of the community-run Court Theatre in Tring, to see how their plans were evolving now restrictions are starting to lift.
He told us that although this had been a torrid time for The Court, performance-wise and financially, they are doing their best to relaunch a reduced programme of events this autumn by continuing with the Blues Bar Tring and music events that have been running under restrictions; comedy; the annual Pepper Show and Tring Theatre Company’s production of Calendar Girls The Musical, planned for October and November respectively.
He said: ‘For the future we need our user groups to want to continue putting on shows and our audiences to return to support our events in the hope we can get up a full head of steam for a full programme in 2022. This will begin in earnest with the return of our annual pantomime, Cinderella, and we are also very excited to announce that Dan Maxwell of 349 Design has been working with us on a relaunch of our website to help give us a new fresh start.’
