Cornish touring company Miracle Theatre is following the path of stage supremo Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber and will screen its back catalogue of shows for free.

From this week the first Monday of the month will officially now be known as a 'Miracle Monday'.

Miracle Theatre has been steadily building a library of films of its shows and has now announced it will release a new production free to watch online from 7pm on the first Monday of each month throughout the spring and summer.

It treads the same footsteps across the boards as Sir Andrew, who this week revealed he will be streaming some of his musicals for free on "The Shows Must Go On" YouTube channel - although his will only be available for 48 hours at a time.

Miracle artistic director Bill Scott said: “This will be the first summer in 40 years that Miracle hasn’t been able to bring live theatre to the nooks and crannies of Cornwall, the Scilly Isles and the South West.

"We hope these films will bring back some happy memories and go some way towards filling the gap."

Each show will available to view for 30 days via Miracle Theatre’s YouTube channel, from 7pm on its release date.

Monday, April 6: First up this Monday is the stage production of ‘Tin,’ a large scale collaboration with English Touring Opera commissioned by the Cornish Mining World Heritage and featuring Cornish opera singer Ben Luxon with a community choir.

Filmed in April 20102 at the Hall for Cornwall, the production went on to become a micro-budget feature film released in 2015 starring Jenny Agutter and Dudley Sutton alongside the theatre cast. Tin the movie is available to watch via video on demand.

The schedule will then be:

Monday, May 4: ‘The Case of the Frightened Lady’ filmed in May 2014 at The Minack Theatre.

Written by Bill Scott with music by Jim Carey, The Case of The Frightened Lady originally toured across the South West in 2005. It won the Minack Trophy in 2006 and was subsequently produced for a tour of Ireland (North and South) by Bruiser Theatre.

Miracle went on to revive the show - complete with original cast - as part of its special 35th anniversary programme and remains one of Miracle’s most popular productions to date.

It’s 1932 and Edgar Wallace, the Fleet Street editor widely known for his hugely popular and successful whodunits, gets a desperate call from his publisher. With only a weekend to produce a new novel, the indefatigable Wallace leaps into action.

Monday, June 1: The Importance of Being Earnest, summer 2012.

Oscar Wilde’s ‘trivial comedy for serious people,’ often cited as one of the funniest plays ever written, was a huge hit with audiences of all ages. With Miracle regular Benjamin Dyson portraying Lady Bracknell and the full cast dancing the ‘Turkey Trot’ against a backdrop of the Atlantic Ocean, it has classic Miracle hallmarks throughout.

Monday, July 6: The Magnificent Three, summer 2015.

Miracle’s ‘wild and wacky western’ with original songs by Tom Adams toured across the wild South West in 2015. Gather up your posse and settle down to watch this rootin’-tootin’, finger-clickin’, toe-tappin’, saloon-door-swingin’, double-cross-dressin’ Spaghetti Western adventure.
