Options to upgrade include an after show pass to an “In conversation with Aljaž & Janette”, and an exclusive 30 minute Behind-the-Scenes film, featuring additional footage with access to the dressing rooms, rehearsals & backstage of Remembering the Oscars.
Aljaž’s & Janette’s announcement follows the news that their Remembering The Oscars UK tour has been postponed until March 2022 due to the continuing uncertainty regarding the reopening of venues currently closed across the country as part of the nationwide effort to combat the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).
Aljaž and Janette said, “We feel awful having to postpone our Remembering the Oscars tour for a second time due to the pandemic, but we are delighted to have been given the opportunity to film some of the highlights from the show. We were devastated that another year would go by without sharing what we truly believe is our best show to date. Hopefully this will give our audience and fans a taster of what is to come next year. We love and miss you, and hope you enjoy the show!”
Many of the postponed tour’s venues, including Birmingham Symphony Hall, Newcastle’s Theatre Royal and Northampton’s Derngate Theatre, have come together to help promote the stream across the UK. The show’s co-producers Steven Howard for The TCB Group and David Shepherd, jointly commented, “The support we have from our friends in the regions is invaluable. While venues remain closed, they are working with us to promote this very special streamed performance of Remembering The Oscars to their respective audiences. We all know how important local venues are to the cultural fabric of the UK, so we hope this goes someway to supplement the public’s craving for live performance.”
