Sheung Wan Civic Centre co-operates with partner for promoting arts

*******************************************************



Sheung Wan Civic Centre will co-operate with Spring-Time Experimental Theatre under the Leisure and Cultural Services Department's (LCSD) new Programme Partnership Scheme.

The Programme Partnership Scheme is a pilot project launched by the department at North District Town Hall and Yuen Long Theatre last year. It will be extended to Sheung Wan Civic Centre and Ngau Chi Wan Civic Centre in 2003-2004.

A spokesman for the department said the scheme aimed to promote the arts in the community, and to maximise use of venue facilities and resources.

"We believe that the programme partner will help develop and build up the image of the civic centre, promoting the arts and building up an audience in the local community more effectively in the long run," he said.

Spring-Time Experimental Theatre, the Sheung Wan Civic Centre Programme Partner will launch a series of programmes from next month (May) onwards for a year. These programmes are both entertaining and educational, and include dramas, musicals, forums, exhibitions and workshops.

To launch the scheme, a Cantonese drama will be presented at the Sheung Wan Civic Centre Theatre from May 22 to 25. Tickets priced at $100 and $150 are now available for booking at URBTIX. Half-price tickets are on offer to full-time students, senior citizens, people with disabilities and Comprehensive Social Security Assistance recipients. A Cantonese forum on the drama will also be held prior to the performance on May 3. Admission to the forum is free.

Programme booklets on upcoming events under the Sheung Wan Civic Centre Programme Partnership Scheme will be available at all LCSD Civic Centres in about a week.

Spring-Time Experimental Theatre was set up in 1999 with graduates from the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts.
