Call to support The Rhumbelow Theatre

The Rhumbelow Theatre has thanked all the people who have supported the Rhumbelow Theatre Loss Series, initiated to try to offset losses brought about by the lockdown and keep the theatre going.

“We have, through this process, raised enough funds to maintain the theatre overheads for April and May 2020 and to support some of our performers. May tracked at half of April and sadly June is again tracking at half of May revenue. Please support this initiative,” it said in a recent press release.

While there has been an announcement by the government that theatres can re-open under strict guidelines, it is going to bring many challenges and, with restricted numbers, may not be viable.

“We are investigating the options and costs, while we await the government guidelines (not yet published),” the theatre said.

Support theatre

The challenge will be to maintain the momentum for the next six months or so. So far they have loaded onto digital platforms more than 100 shows that have been previously recorded, and can be ordered (see Facebook link below).

The theatre’s operator Roland Stansell urged the public and theatre lovers to support artists, crew and actors to help keep theatre alive in the province.
