Virtual Theatre

What is the virtual theatre?

The theatre may be temporarily closed, but the show must go on! We have the pleasure of launching the Joseph Rowntree Virtual Theatre, a catalogue of digital events happening up and down the country, to help our dedicated and lovely community stay connected and keep the creativity and magic of the theatre going until the doors to our theatre are opened once more. 

Like all charities in the UK, COVID-19 has had a significant impact on the Joseph Rowntree Theatre. We know that the theatre already has a special place in the hearts of many people and there are many ways in which you can support us throughout this period. To find out more, visit the Support Us page.
