Today, November 18, has been declared Love Theatre day and 300+ theatre companies in the UK and elsewhere are celebrating through the live Twitter feed #LoveTheatre.
The award winning partnership for this second world wide event of Guardian Culture Professionals Network, Twitter UK and CultureThemes is live now.
Presented with customary UK cheek and charm, the posts are giving up such secrets as why both vodka and Post-It Notes are indispensable backstage.
The 24 hour event is divided into three segments:
#BackStage – a glimpse into how a production comes together in the weeks and months leading up to the big night.
• #AskATheatre – a unique opportunity for theatre fans and aspiring actors to hear first-hand from the individuals and groups that make the magic happen.
• #Showtime will give those who can’t make it to a theatre the chance to sit in the “virtual stalls” to experience a performance.
