A resounding thank you for contributing to the Rehearsal Suite Fund and for helping us improve our unique venue.
As you know from watching our productions in the Viaduct it is not the driest of atmospheres, and it has been no different backstage. Damp costumes- no fault of the Wardrobe mistress; queues for the one toilet; jockeying for the two sinks- you get the picture! Now thanks to you, Showers, Toilets, Laundry facilities and a Green Room all kitted out and surrounding our very own Rehearsal Room. On your side, easier audience access with brighter house lighting and an assisted hearing loop will complete this stage of refurbishing.
I love standing at the top of the tunnel on performance nights and welcoming you to “our ‘Ouse”- and part of that welcome is the admission that ours is a very rare space with many idiosyncrasies. The Arts Council, led by our clamorous requests, and Dean Clough, led by the indefatigable Jeremy Hall, have now made our theatrical nights a tad comfier.
Our Thanks to:
Edward P Harrison
