The Broadway Barking will be streaming performances of their successful Christmas pantomime ‘Cinderella’ to hospices live across the UK this Christmas for free. 

This initiative was devised and is supported by DeadSocial. It is hoped that this project will roll out across the national network of hospices and hospice patient families via the umbrella organisations Together for Short Lives and the UK-wide charity, Help the Hospices. 

So far the hospices who have been granted access to the stream from the fairy Godmother (as shown in the photo above) are:

  • * Richard House
  • * St Josephs
  • * Northern Ireland Children Hospice
  • * Helen and Douglas House
  • * Children’s Hospice South West
  • * Claire House
  • * Childrens Charity Scotland
Cinderella at the Broadway will stream performances during this festive season and they encourage any other interested hospices or nursing homes across the country to get in touch. Live streaming and other content, like rehearsals, workshops and live Q&A sessions have been a feature of the Autumn season at the Broadway. Chris Mellor, Interim Creative Producer says: I am is a passionate advocate of this technology as a means of reaching a much wider audience, both in the comfort of their own homes, but equally as powerfully in hospitals and hospices across the UK.

The Broadway has teamed up this year with Arc Theatre marrying all the traditional fun of pantomime, with the theatrical ingenuity and contemporary comment that has set Arc apart for 30 years.
