Enjoy the benefits whilst supporting us...
This year sees Greenwich Theatre make a bold step forward - with £400,000 already secured from the local authority to improve the building, a fundraising campaign underway to match that, and a powerful new ethos which sees everyone in the organisation working together to support some of this country's most exciting new theatre companies. Greenwich Theatre is already making a huge impact on the national theatre scene, and audiences here have that rare chance, when something is touring the country captivating audiences and critics, to say "I saw it first at Greenwich Theatre".
Our impact on the national theatre scene continues with our creation and presentation of theatre for families and children. Lead producer on the annual Greenwich Children's Theatre Festival, producer of one of the country's favourite traditional family pantomimes, and a regular programmer of high quality family shows here and around the borough, increasingly programmers and producers from the UK and beyond are looking to Greenwich to find the best in family theatre.
At the same time we have secured the future of the company, turning around historic debts to make the company robust and successful in a climate of reduced funding and failing theatres. We are in discussion with the local authority over the finer points of a long lease, and we have dramatically reduced our reliance on grants which means changes in funding policy don't pose the threat to us that they do to many theatres around the country.
However, that does not mean that we can continue without support. The local authority continue to support our work, along with a host of local, national and international companies, but we also need you. To continue to grow, not only to survive but to thrive, to continue presenting a programme of challenging, entertaining, exciting theatre that marks Greenwich Theatre out as a special venue and a venue to be cherished, we need the support of individuals alongside the companies already committed to helping protect our future.
