3TFM to broadcast world premiere of Now & Then on Wednesday 12th May
Triple Act Theatre & Arts and 3TFM are teaming up to showcase the talents of our rising stars in the world premiere of ‘Now & Then’ an original radio play on Wednesday 12th May at 8pm.
This wickedly funny and entertaining radio play takes the listeners on a journey through time to explore history and hear it like never before! Meeting Kings, Queens, witches, fairies, heroines and villains!
‘Now & Then’ was created as part of our Make History online workshops with award-winning performing arts professionals Jordanna O’Neill and John Kielty.
Jordanna O’Neill commented: “It’s a great thing to be able to travel through time when you’re stuck in lockdown! Our time travelling team encountered Kings, fabulous female freedom fighter and mythical beasts (and we only lost a couple to dinosaurs)!
We began this project at the start of a second lockdown and any hopes of gathering in groups or watching live performance were put on hold. During this time it was wonderful to work with Triple Act to deliver their spring youth theatre project in a way that was safe but still fun, creative and challenging. Working online to create a bespoke radio play can be tricky but the group met the challenges of devising, rehearsing and recording via Zoom with enthusiasm & creativity. The result is a comical jaunt through history which we hope makes you all laugh as much as we did!”
Triple Act Creative Learning Officer, Jamie Lee Aitken will be joining 3TFM presenter, Archie Edgar during his show on Friday 7th May between 3–6pm to have a chat about the making of ‘Now and Then’ and the upcoming premiere.
She will also be talking about Triple Act Theatre & Arts’ new programme for 2021/22 including our Youth Theatre Classes, Early Years Classes and a Three Towns Community Choir.
