The Together Season Festival at The Crucible Theatre, Sheffield, Sheffield 24 May — 5 June 2021 Tickets from £15 — Book now

Sheffield Theatres will reopen with The Together Season Festival, an exciting two-week programme of work from local artists. Curated by a panel of artists, audience members and theatre representatives, the festival will feature thirteen new works and will take place from Monday 24 May at Sheffield Crucible.

The festival offers the perfect celebratory welcome for audiences returning to the theatre.

Showcasing a range of different performance genres, the festival aims to shine a light on some of Sheffield’s up-and-coming artists, theatre-makers and companies.

The Together Season Festival launches with Desert Island Flicks by Spiltmilk Dance; described as a ‘blockbuster, adventure and rom com rolled into one’, the piece aims to remake and replay 60 of the greatest movie moments in 60 minutes. Uplifting and nostalgic, the show celebrates the iconic characters, plot twists and catchy soundtracks of all our favourite films.

Over the two weeks of the festival, audiences will be able to experience a diverse range of theatre. With dance and physical theatre pieces, new writing, spoken word, puppets and circus style performance, the festival offers the perfect celebratory welcome for audiences returning to the theatre. Closing the festival is Sheffield’s former poet laureate and rap artist Otis Mensah.

Sheffield Theatres are undoubtedly looking forward to welcoming folk back inside the beautiful Crucible Theatre, which will adopt a Covid-safe configuration for social distancing. Additional safety measures also include e-tickets, new cleaning routines and seating in family bubbles.

Leading the project, Anthony Lau (of the Regional Theatre Young Director Scheme) said, “The Festival is about putting local talent on our stages, front and centre, but it is also about bringing audiences back into our auditorium. It is about the chatter of finding your seat and the collective hush before a show begins. It is about sharing laughter and being told a story together as one. It is about the liveness of theatre and being back together after too long apart”.
