The Idaho Falls Arts Council will bring some of the world’s best live theatre to local audiences this winter at the ARTitorium on Broadway’s MC Theater.
The Arts Council will take part in the National Theatre’s project to broadcast “world-class theatre” to locations around the world. The project is called National Theatre Live, and will feature live productions from the Royal National Theatre stage in London.
“We’ve been looking at National Theatre Live for a couple years now,” Brandi Newton, Executive Director of the Idaho Falls Arts Council, said in a release, “and we are so excited to be presenting it now. Not everyone gets the opportunity to travel to London to see these incredible productions, but that doesn’t mean they don’t want to. It’s at the heart of our mission to make world-class productions like this accessible for our community.”
The Arts Council’s National Theatre Live season begins Oct. 6 with the broadcast of Harold Pinter’s “No Man’s Land,” starring Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen
The other local broadcasts are:
Nov. 10: Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead
Dec. 1: Twelfth Night
Feb. 2: Amadeus
March 2: Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?
April 20: Julius Caesar
Tickets are $20 ($12 for students) or $100 for the full series. They are available through the Idaho Falls Arts Council at idahofallsarts.org, 208-522-0471, or at 498 A Street in Idaho Falls.
