New Musical Theatre Web Series ‘THE THEATRE CHANNEL’ to launch in September
A brand-new musical theatre-based web series, ‘The Theatre Channel’ – bringing together talents from the theatre world, both on and off stage, will showcase well-known musical theatre classics; performed by some of the industry’s most beloved performers.
The pilot episode is set to premiere in September, with a full season of 9 further episodes planned to launch soon after. Each episode will feature a different line-up of star performers, run at approximately 30 minutes and feature a mix of 4-5 musical theatre songs, filmed on location at The Theatre Café.
The primary goal of this pay-to-stream series is to readily employ artists, creatives and stage managers while theatres remain closed or unable to operate at full capacity and to also provide audiences a slice of the best that the theatre industry has to offer. Unlike recent one-off paid live streamed concerts, every episode of The Theatre Channel series, once published and paid for, will be available to watch at the viewers leisure for an unlimited number of streams.
The pilot episode will feature the following performers: Tarinn Callender (Come From Away, Hamilton), Carrie Hope Fletcher (Heathers, Addams Family, Les Misérables), Matt Henry (Kinky Boots), Lucie Jones (Waitress, Legally Blonde), Oliver Ormson (Back to the Future, Addams Family, Book of Mormon) and Jenna Russell (Merrily We Roll Along, Sunday in the Park with George). Further casting to be announced soon.
