A Festive Thank You from Liv Lorent

Monday December 9th 2019 Share page

Thank you to all of you who in our 25th year have supported us and come to watch our performances. We toured far and wide from the highlands Inverness, down to Sadler’s Wells, across the country to Bangor and many dates across the North with Rumpelstiltskin. Thank you to the thousands of you who came to the theatres to watch our shows and the incredible supporters who travelled to see us in our home town at Northern Stage for After Dark. You came from Cornwall, London, Edinburgh, Hull, York and Leeds to celebrate a very special evening, we are so thrilled you came. We could not exist without you wanting what we offer.

Thank you again to all our new friends who shared the stage with us with Rumpelstiltskin and we are delighted that our youngest performer this year was 5, and our eldest was 92. This tour has been truly representative of our interest in people at all stages of life.

It was a delight to work with the 100+ adults who joined us on the Gateshead Quayside for the adventure that was Great North Star. We are touched to have found new fans and supporters amongst you all.

Our plans to move into our own studio this year was in the end not possible, it was not meant to be.... in the meantime, in January we make a move to join other charities in a new office premises in MEA House in Newcastle upon Tyne. The hunt for studio space goes on so please keep your ears and eyes open for us - this has become critical with no studio resource in the North East!

We are excited to have started exploring our next fairytale for family audiences - Carol Ann Duffy’s The Lost Happy Endings. We hope we will see you at the premiere at Northern Stage in Autumn 2019 and on tour! Thank you again for choosing to support balletLORENT.
