Here at the Marina we pride ourselves on being a friendly and welcoming place for performers and patrons alike. Our building is the only purpose built theatre in Lowestoft and has seen lots of changes, refurbishments and additions over its many years.
On the 9th August as our staff prepared to open the Theatre for a family screening of Aladdin, we were shocked to discover that two of our brass door handles had been stolen from the entrance doors to our Theatre.
We're a charitable trust and to present our wide and varied programme of performances, films, screenings, youth and outreach work, we rely heavily on the support of our patrons, charitable donations and a strong team of volunteers. Together with our Landlord Lowestoft Town Council we work hard to keep our building looking at it's best and our doors wide open, even when funds are stretched.
That's why we need your help. By supporting this campaign you are helping to ensure that our theatre remains at its best and is able to serve the community which we are proud to be a part of.
We will be taking extra precautions to ensure that a theft of this type cannot happen again and have removed the remaining door handles until the replacements can be purchased.
If we raise more than we need to replace the door handles, all additional funds will be re-absorbed into the Marina Theatre Trust.
