FTH Theatre and The Audio Story Company are delighted to announce a brand new partnership. This will see The Audio Story Company take up residency in FTH Theatre in 2022.
As part of the collaboration The Audio Story Company will be delivering a series of creative engagement events and performances to help re-engage local communities with the arts and their local theatre. As part of these events, The Audio Story Company will be presenting Happiness Collectors; their audio-immersive live experience for family audiences. Events will take place in local landmark sites such as The Kelpies, Callendar Park and Howgate Shopping Centre.
The culmination of the residency will see the development of a brand new theatrical offering for family audiences; inspired by local people, communities and their stories.
This project has been made possible through funding from The Performing Arts Venues Relief Fund (PAVR) from the Scottish Government, through Creative Scotland. This fund is helping performing arts venues to remain solvent, return staff from furlough, and enable new artistic commissions from freelance artists.
Lesley O’Hare, Cultural Services Manager, Falkirk Council said:
