Enjoy the benefits whilst supporting us...
The last eighteen months have been the most critical, tough, and dynamic that the theatre has ever known. In October 2010, with a squeeze on funding support, we had to save an additional £35,000 a year.This meant we had to reduce our core staff to just six people. We were all emptying the bins and washing glasses behind the bar for a while. In spite of this we have done more, produced more and entertained more in the last year than ever before. Though we still operate under great financial pressure, ours is a true success story. So far in 2012 we have:
- increased the number of resident artist companies huddled together in our Drummond Room office to three. (Gomito, Live Canon and Simply Told Productions)
- seen over 20,000 people come to our pantomime Aladdin
- created the biggest ever Greenwich Children's Theatre Festival in venues across Greenwich
- won an award for our environmental care and energy efficiency
- taken audiences across the Thames to our production of Balthazar’s Bazaar and taken another Associate Artist across the Atlantic Ocean to perform Pakita in New York
This work would not be possible without the support of our Friends. To become a part of our growing success story, you too can become a Friend - and in return we will offer you:
