We have announced exciting new initiatives to support creativity and performing arts in the Midlands, as well as revealing the selected regional artist who will take their work to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival this year as part of a partnership with the city’s Pleasance Theatre.
Curve has announced its Made at Curve 2020 Christmas musical, the regional premiere production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Wizard of Oz, running 28 Nov 2020 - 16 Jan 2021.
Based on the classic 1939 MGM film and directed by Curve's Artistic Director Nikolai Foster, The Wizard of Oz includes the iconic songs Somewhere Over The Rainbow, If I Only Had A Brain and Follow The Yellow Brick Road, as well as new music and songs from Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice.
Following a highly acclaimed 2018 tour, award-winning British playwright, dramatist and screenwriter, Alan Bennett (The Madness of George III, The History Boys) presents The Habit of Art.
Starring Matthew Kelly and David Yelland, examine the joy, pain and emotional cost of creativity at Curve for one week only. We spoke with Matthew Kelly, playing Fitz (W.H. Auden) to find out more.
