Children at Newham University Hospital, Richard House Children’s Hospice and Saint Francis Hospice will all be able to watch a special live stream of Rapunzel on Thursday.

The show will be live-streamed from Theatre Royal Stratford East, providing festive entertainment for those too sick to spend Christmas at home.

The theatre’s artistic director, Nadia Fall, said: “By live streaming Rapunzel to local hospices and hospitals, in Christmas week, we’re continuing our aim to reach as many people as possible who otherwise would not get to see it.”

And the excitement is already building as the cast visited both the Glen Road, Plaistow hospital and Saint Francis Hospice in Havering-atte-Bower to meet the staff and patients who will be watching the live stream.
