The Rhyl Little Theatre is asking for your help in renovating our dressing rooms! The theatre has been in the heart of the community since 1963, providing the space and opportunities for many local actors/performers to showcase and develop their talent.
The theatre has reached an exciting time in it's journey, with new managers Arlena Thornton and Danni Moore, determined and dedicated to bringing the theatre into the modern world. Having survived the hard times of Covid-19, the theatre can look forward to a bright future ahead with a fully programmed Winter season and plans on expanding the club to welcome more children the opportunity to perform on stage.
Who uses the dressing rooms?
Our resident Children's Club, a charity organisation aiming to educate young people in the appreciation of theatre and the arts. The club hosts their own shows multiple times throughout the year from producing their own content to learning classics.
Many local drama and dance groups in the area, children and adults, take pleasure in having the opportunity to showcase their productions in their local theatre.
Many professional companies use the theatre and in doing so, help keep the charity able to continue providing local children with the opportunity to perform.
The dressing rooms
Let's be honest, they're a bit run down, neglected and in need of a good revamp!
The dressing rooms are known to be impractical with damaged mirrors and worktops, old carpets and that musty old smell we have never been able to grow accustomed to.
The dressing rooms are majorly important to the children who use them. We believe every child should feel comfortable and safe, especially when feeling extra vulnerable and nervous when having to change and prepare to go on stage.
How we will spend the money:
Installing new worktops and mirrors
Replacing the doors with internal fire doors
Updating the lighting
Providing rails, shelves and storage spaces
A skip to dispose of the waste
We are pleased to announce that the theatre has been successful in receiving funding for a heating system to be installed throughout the building. Just imagine, warm, cared for, clean, welcoming, functional dressing rooms for all users of the stage. You can help this become a reality.
Thank you for everyone's continued support.
