A Bridlington community theatre has passed the halfway stage in its latest fundraising efforts.
The Spotlight Theatre has raised over £6,000 in donations as part of their Buy-a-Brick appeal.
Estimated costs to build a dividing wall and other construction works is thought to be in the region of £12,000 and theatre members and supporters hope to raise funds from the recently launching a ‘Buy-a-Brick Appeal.
Plans are being made to extend the theatre by acquiring part of the garage premises next door, with the much-needed extra space being used to relocate the cramped theatre workshop and provide much-needed storage and wardrobe space.
Chairman of the theatre, Mike Sheldon, said: “Spotlight plays a vital role in providing amateur theatre for all. Bridlington Amateur Operatic and Dramatic Society (BOADS) purchased an empty building in West Street in 1999, and through sheer hard work and determination by its volunteers – they transformed it into an incredible, fully equipped bijou theatre.”
A total of 1200 bricks are for sale at £10 each and for every brick purchased the buyers name will be entered into a draw where three lucky winners will be special guests for a theatre show of their choice, along with VIP seats and hospitality.
