Carl Walker, our Managing Director said:
“We’ve been working with Theatr Clwyd throughout 2018 to explore the use of live streaming in performing arts, and this year’s Panto was another excellent example of how to expand the theatre walls to reach an audience who are unable to physically be in the venue, yet can still enjoy the show in very high quality. We were delighted to hear that patients enjoyed the live stream, and felt so involved that there was some dancing and singing on the ward during the show!”
Live streaming of the panto is part of Theatr Clwyd’s community engagement programme, which aims to develop the use of state of the art technology to reach a wider, even global audience for the theatre’s work. Live Streaming is a collaboration with Streamer. They have developed a product that easily enables online broadcasts to be created with professional quality and be received by anyone watching on a tablet, smartphone or computer.
The panto live stream has also been captured on DVD for patients at Mold Community Hospital, Wrexham Maelor Stroke Unit and University Hospital Llandough in Cardiff to enjoy later this month.
