Gatepost Theatre Company are a Derby based group, many of who have been performing together since they were in school! They put on numerous performances throughout the year as well as working on smaller concerts to take out in to the community. It is from these concerts that Gatepost have formed a strong bond with Age UK Derby and Derbyshire.
Gatepost Theatre Company said:
"In light of Covid-19 and social distancing measures we have had to postpone one major performance (Bad Girls, The Musical) and a number of smaller events such as our VE Day commemoration. As a company we find it very hard to rest on our proverbial laurels and feel compelled to use our skills to put some good out into the world (from an appropriate, virtual distance) at this time.
Age UK Derby & Derbyshire have always supported Gatepost, and provide some of our most enthusiastic audiences. We also know that many members of the older community are also unable to take part in their own activities at this time. With this in mind we have taken a musical number from our upcoming, September production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat and recorded a chair based exercise routine with which we hope people can continue to remain fit at home. "
We know that many members of the community are unable to take part in their regular activities at this time. With this in mind Gatepost Theatre Company have taken a musical number from their upcoming, September production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat, worked with the Strictly No Falling team and recorded a chair based exercise routine with which we hope people can continue to remain fit at home.
