Wolverhampton's Arena Theatre prepares to welcome an audience again

A theatre will come alive with performance tomorrow after more than a year of being mothballed.

The Arena Theatre, which is managed by University of Wolverhampton, closed its doors on March 16, 2020.

It will re-open for live in-person performances tomorrow with the socially distanced performance of its in-house production The Librarian by Tom Allsopp.

The production will also be live-streamed for those unable to purchase a ticket.

Neil Reading, artistic director of the Arena Theatre, said: “After a long, gruelling year for the performing arts we are delighted to be able to open the Arena Theatre to a limited audience.

"As the first major step on the road to full reopening, we are beyond excited to be given audience an opportunity to engage with live performance again.

"It won’t quite be back to normal just yet, but we look forward to the support from our audiences in helping us to begin the return we have all been so desperately waiting for.”
