It’s been confirmed that a new bio-musical about the rise to fame of the Bee Gees is in the works, and could be eyeing a place in the West End.
Universal Theatrical Group is the team behind...
The Print Room is one of London's fringe theatres and has been in operation since September 2010. It has been on the look out for a new permanent residency ever since the landlord of their former venue, an abandoned warehouse on Hereford Road in Notting Hill, east London, decided to sell the property for residential development. The company has now confirmed that they have found their new home and will be moving to the Coronet Cinema, also in Notting Hill.
The Coronet currently functions as a two-screen cinema. The larger screen has a 400 seat capacity, whilst the smaller screen offers a 150 seat capacity. Under the direction of The Print Room's artistic team, the smaller screen will be converted into a 100 seat capacity theatre space and the larger screen will continue to operate as a cinema. Future plans will also incorporate the introductions of rehearsal and workshop spaces, along with a restaurant, bar and administration offices.
Artistic Director of The Print Room, Anda Winters, released the following statement:
“We are thrilled to be moving to such a glorious new home in Notting Hill. The Print Room began its journey five years ago in a derelict printing workshop on Hereford Road, and we have now found a permanent home on our doorstep. It’s a truly grand space where we can keep delivering our eclectic programme of world-class drama, innovative dance, diverse music, poetry, exhibitions and other performing arts, with the addition of world-class cinema. Our involvement with the local community, through our free and discounted ticket offers and education programme, will increase along with the development of the new space. The possibilities for The Coronet are extraordinary, and we will bring to it the same nurturing spirit we developed in our first life in Hereford Road. This move will secure the company’s long-term future in the heart of Notting Hill.”
The Print Room's inaugural season at the Coronet will commence this Autumn.
