The brand new online platform is called Lamphouse On Demand and will be an online subscription service, just like Netlfix, but for theatre.

For £6.99 a month, you will have full access to a range of Lamphouse Theatre’s previous productions to watch whenever you want including Suitcase Shakespeare: Romeo and Juliet. 

When you sign up to Lamphouse On Demand you’ll receive full, anytime access to the shows, plus each week subscribers can watch an exclusive episode or live stream. This will be filmed or streamed directly from the Lamphouse HQ's living room to yours.

Artistic Director Tom Fox says: "Even though the theatres have closed we won’t let that stop us! We’re really excited about bringing brilliant shows, scenes, sketches and plays straight to your living room to keep you all entertained and smiling through the next few months.

"You'll be able to watch our version of The Jungle Book On Demand. This show is perfect for anyone aged four and up. You’ll also be able to access Suitcase Shakespeare which is great for anyone who is studying Romeo and Juliet or Macbeth."

If you’re at home with the family, or just looking for some original, interesting ways to while away the hours, Lamphouse On Demand is just what you need.
