We did it
On 20th October 2020 we successfully raised £8,685 ( + est. £1692.50 Gift Aid ) with 165 supporters in 41 days

As you can see from the picture, our theatre is empty, when it should be full of happy theatregoers. Please help us by donating.

As an Ex stage manager for a wealth of productions + assistant to other S.Ms over the years, we, my wife and I feel ready to give something back for the hours of toil we have endured.

June Marie Wood 7th October 2020

As a one time member of a local Musical Theatre Company who has performed here on stage and as a regular supporter of JR Theatre shows I hope all your fundraising efforts are successful.

Jacqueline Holmes 2nd October 2020

I’ve loved this theatre since I sold programmes for the youth theatre in the 1970s. I’m now part of the costume team for the JR Players and I’m really missing making something wacky for our dame Graham to strut his stuff in at the panto. Roll on next year when we can do our thing again in this amazing building.
