The Cultch has announce its final subscription box of the year. The Spring Box includes the remaining shows of their 2020/2021 Season.
Over the next two months The Cultch will present 3 online productions as well as IGNITE: Plugged In!, this year’s digital edition of the IGNITE! Youth Arts Fest.
While this year has brought unprecedented challenges to the community, The Cultch has continued to support local artists struggling from the effects of an industry in lockdown, by pivoting to create world-class online theatre, thanks to the hard work of a talented video and tech team.
Going into the spring,The Cultch is thrilled to continue this work with some exciting new projects from local artists. From an exciting online festival created entirely by The Cultch Youth Panel (IGNITE: Plugged In!), to an exploration of music, poetry, movement, and ideas from Khari Wendell McClelland and friends (The Essentials), to the long awaited performance of a show that was originally scheduled to be presented spring 2020 (The Boy in the Moon), and finally to a fan favourite from Tetsuro Shigematsu, seeing a rebirth in digital form (1 Hour Photo).
The Spring Box subscriptions plus single tickets for the trio of productions go on sale today, March 12th. Tickets for IGNITE: Plugged In! go on sale the week of March 15th.
