Catch a West End show for free in South Quay

The West End really has come East as productions are clambering to rehearse at Lanterns Studio Theatre in South Quay. And it's great news for theatre fans as each show that visits is asked by Lanterns' boss Janet Viola to hold a free open rehearsal.

Last month Bronowski Productions' Hairspray, produced by Oli Somes, did just that.

Oli said: "It's such a fantastic space. You come in here and then you're not bothered for the rest of the time. In other theatres where there's performances going on it's very distracting. The performers hate it. "Open rehearsals are great for the cast - it's the first time they've been able to perform the show in front of an audience and they get some feedback."

In the coming months Wayne Macgregor's Random Dance Company will provide open classes and workshops. Jamiel Laurence from Lanterns said: "Check our website and Facebook pages as we announce how you can be involved."

A spokeswoman for the company said: "Ballet Central features an exciting programme of ballet, contemporary and jazz dance. The varied repertoire features a mixture of newly commissioned works and much-loved revivals, which showcase the talent of the company's young and emerging dancers.

"Ballet Central performed at the London 2012 Olympic Games and the 2013 Edinburgh Fringe Festival. This family-friendly show is ideal for dance enthusiasts as well as those new to ballet. Don't miss this opportunity to see these highly talented dancers as they launch their professional careers."
