Shinfield Players Theatre currently closed
In February - with just two weeks to our next production, Last Tango in Whitby - we were not expecting to raise the theatre roof so literally. Unfortunately, storm Eunice did her worst and tore off 95% of our the roof, exposing the auditorium, stage and back stage to the elements.
The theatre would like to say a MASSIVE thank you to EVERYONE who gave up their time to help place tarpaulin as a temporary replacement until a permanent solution was resolved. This is now being fitted but there is still a lot of cleaning and internal repair work to get the theatre open again.
Whilst some of the roof repairs are covered by insurance; the theatre is having to find monies to fund much of the work and we have an appeal for support for this. If you would like to help with a contribution then you can do so here and we will be eternally grateful for support.
We are now rescheduling our programme of shows as well as slotting some new ones in and more information will be posted here and on our Facebook page as it is known.
In the meantime, stay positive – COVID did not close us, nor will the temporary set-back.
Thank you for your continued support and offers of help during this difficult time.
