Leading theatre artists feature in live-streamed artist talks and an International Women’s Day streamed concert event on performing arts platform Thespie
Theatre discovery platform Thespie today announces eight new online theatre and arts events during the month of March. The program spans several artist talks with theatre professionals of varying disciplines, particularly women creatives, and is headlined by an International Women’s Day streaming event.
The Reunion x Girl Power (8 March) is a double-feature of concerts filmed in October and December of 2020 and will include previously unreleased behind-the-scenes footage and interviews, along with an artist Q&A created specifically
for International Women’s Day. This special 2-hour event stars Aimie Atkinson, Alexia McIntosh, Grace Mouat, Millie O’Connell, Natalie Paris, Maiya Quansah-Breed, and Jarneia Richard-Noel, seven of the UK’s top vocal powerhouses who originally met as the original West End queens of the musical SIX.
The Reunion x Girl Power will be available to stream on-demand following the premiere, and purchasers will have 7 days to view. Tickets for each are £15/$20 per household, and are available at https://thespie.com
