Would TikTok Tickets Inspire Your Acting?

In a bid to encourage more young people to get into acting, the Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC) has released lower-priced tickets, in collaboration with social media platform TikTok.

The TikTok tickets are priced at £10 for full-time students aged between 14 and 25 years old and are available at the RSC’s shows in Stratford-upon-Avon and the Barbican, as well as the West End production of Matilda The Musical in London.

It hopes this will “support young people to develop their love of theatre and live performance”, which is why these TikTok tickets can be booked as part of a mixed group of standard-issued tickets.

In return, the RSC will produce content for the social networking platform, from behind-the-scenes footage to TikTok takeovers, hoping to spark interest in social media users.

This will demonstrate “connections between the plays and their own lives and experiences”, an RSC spokesperson told the BBC.

The first productions offering TikTok tickets are Richard III (showing from June 23rd to October 8th) and All’s Well That Ends Well (August 16th to October 8th), with people able to book these from March 7th.

Speaking with the news provider, TikTok’s general manager for the UK Rich Waterworth said: “By partnering with the RSC to provide greater access to the work they do, we hope to inspire more young people to enjoy, experience and participate in theatre and the arts in all its forms.”
