The Craic Theatre has been part of Coalisland’s rich cultural history for over 25 years. We are a creative home for the people of Coalisland and the wider Mid Ulster area, and are passionate about supporting our community, improving health and well-being and providing positive, uplifting experiences through the arts. We have given opportunities to many young people through our Youth Theatre programme with hundreds of young people attending classes and participating in shows every year.
Because of the current Covid-19 pandemic and with no date of when social distancing restrictions will be lifted, we have had to take the difficult decision to postpone previously announced productions and put on hold plans for our 2020/21 programme of events, which means we have lost between 60% and 70% of our income from box office and bar sales.
Since March, our board of management has taken significant measures to alliviate the situation and avail of all support to ensure that The Craic Theatre will come through this period stronger and better than ever. But we need some help from you.
We believe our community will need us in the recovery from Covid-19 more than ever before, and we really want to be there for you. But right now, we need your continued support. We WILL be back but we need your help!
If you have ever enjoyed a show at Craic or you have ever performed at Craic or your children have ever participated in shows at Craic or you recognise the contribution that Craic has made to the area please consider donating the price of a ticket to a show to our Crowdfunding campaign.
Please keep supporting us through these difficult times, so we can all look forward to being together again soon. We WILL be back but we need your help
