On Wednesday 15 November, the Young Company will be taking over our social media accounts for #LOVETHEATRE day 2017.

Led by the Digital Content Creators, they will give you a unique insight into a day in the life of the Royal Exchange. Together with other theatres across the UK, we will be sharing a sneak peek behind the scenes and connecting you to the creative teams behind the shows that you love. Here’s how you can get involved!

As well as the main hashtag #LoveTheatre, on the day we will also be using three sub-hashtags:

  • #BackStage: (10am-12pm) What goes on behind the scenes – from lighting to our Green Room, take a glimpse into what happens off stage.
  • #AskATheatre: (3pm-5pm) This is your chance to send us your questions about our work and building.
  • #Showtime: (7pm-10pm) As Jubilee goes on stage, we’ll be sharing interviews with theatre staff who bring our shows to life.

“LoveTheatre Day is for anyone who loves theatre. It gives people a chance to see what really happens. Being in the Young Company has given me backstage access and it is an amazing opportunity; it’s really fun and I get to be really creative. The Digital Content Creators will be sharing our experience with you on Twitter and Instagram – we’ll be sharing interviews, unique information about the building and snapshots of the backstage. I love the Royal Exchange. When you’re watching theatre here it feels like the rest of the world is not moving and that all of your focus is on the stage.” – Afshan, Digital Content Creator
