As theatres go dark and productions are cancelled up and down the UK, it is vital that performers and theatre associated companies explore every avenue to keep their customers and audience members entertained during the lock down.
Never has entertainment been so necessary and it will be the creative amongst us who devise ingenious ways of amusing ourselves and the public.
The industry has been turned on its head - instead of punters going to the entertainment, the entertainment has to go to the punter. This is not easy but it is amazing what can be achieved through social media, youtube and blogging.
As the proprietor of Admiral Costumes I have been unbelievably lucky to be in isolation with my daughter, west end performer, Lisa Bridge, in total lockdown with a huge store of costumes.
we have been amusing ourselves with a series of 'Isolation Musicals' filmed around the house using everyday items from the home.
So far we have made two minute clips from The Sound of Music, West Side Story, The Waitress and Grease with a request for Sweeny Todd.
We hope this will entertain our customers and business partners, whilst showcasing our range of superb costumes.
Putting a smile on peoples faces during this unprecedented time.
