Sydney Theatre Company Artistic Director Kip Williams has announced the Company’s plans to return to the stage with the final two productions of the 2021 season – Julius Caesar, directed by Williams and Death of a Salesman directed by STC Associate Director Paige Rattray – to open in November and December respectively.
Williams said STC was delighted to be returning to the stage to round out an incredibly tough year.
“After months of theatres being closed, I’m so excited to share these two great productions with you,” Williams said. “During the lockdown, my creative team and I have been cooking up a theatrical treat for Julius Caesar, which is our first show to be performed ‘in the round’ in the newly renovated Wharf 1 Theatre. I also can’t wait for our second show in December, our prodigiously talented associate director Paige Rattray’s sublime and revelatory take on the much loved classic Death of a Salesman to be staged at the Roslyn Packer Theatre.”
As outlined in the NSW Government’s ‘roadmap to freedom’, entertainment venues will be subject to restrictions under the Public Health Order when reopening. For the remainder of the 2021 season, STC productions will perform to 75 per cent capacity, mask-wearing will be compulsory and all patrons, staff, cast and crew will be required to be fully vaccinated as a condition of entry to the premises. These measures will be maintained for the duration of both seasons
Williams says that safety is of paramount importance, “this is about ensuring there is clarity and confidence for all of our audience, staff and artists across the entirety of these two shows”. Continue reading SYDNEY THEATRE COMPANY TO RETURN TO THE STAGE IN NOVEMBER
