“We’ve had a wonderful experience using the Tall Stories Studio for both rehearsals and live-streamed performances. It’s a great size, with high ceilings and lots of natural light, and easy to load in any gear or set through the loading bay. It’s well equipped technically, and we are always well assisted by the friendly and helpful Tall Stories team.”
Andrew Pugsley, ‘Showstopper! The Improvised Musical’
