THERE was a landmark moment for the RSC Key scheme last week with a special celebration for 21-year-old Hannah Cammock from Stratford who became its 10,000th member.
The RSC Key was launched in 2010, giving anyone aged 16-25 the chance to purchase theatre tickets for all RSC productions for £5, as well as providing many other offers and discounts.
RSC marketing assistant responsible for the scheme Lucy Dwyer said: “We’re delighted with the popularity of The RSC Key. It’s a great scheme for younger people who want to see our productions.
“There’s also a strong RSC Key community, with Facebook and Twitter accounts giving everyone the chance to interact and talk about what they’ve seen.
“We offer exclusive events for members, and discounts in local shops and attractions. And best of all The RSC Key is free to join.
“We hope that those who take the plunge will enjoy coming here and develop a life-long love of going to the theatre. I’d like to congratulate Hannah on being the 10,000th member of the scheme.”
Hannah Cammock said: “I joined because I think it’s a great opportunity to introduce more young people to the arts and especially the RSC. For myself it is an affordable way to see upcoming performances, and I’m hoping to try and see everything this year.”
