We are delighted to inform you, that during this Covid closure we have not been idle... in fact, behind our closed doors it has been a hive of activity!
Firstly, we have made better provision for our actors by creating a new, bigger, purpose-designed dressing room complete with toilet, shower and small kitchenette space. It is very close to completion.
And, most excitingly for our audience, work has now commenced on the new toilets and bigger foyer. That's right, no more scurrying out to cold loos in the middle of winter!
Thank you all for the wonderful support you have given our fundraising efforts over the last few years, because your generosity has contributed significantly to the refurbishments currently underway. This new build was partly funded by the Gellibrand Stronger Communities Grant and by us.
We anticipate that the new build will be completed in early 2021, this year! and we're considering ways in which we can invite people in to see the new 'production' before our first play, which is likely to be April/May.
This is of course in the hands of The Covid!
We'll keep you updated via Cues & News.
