Sheringham LIttle Theatre Anniversary Refurbishment Scheme - an appeal to celebrate 50 years of Summer Rep at Sheringham with a much-needed upgrade of our facilities
July 2010 - December 2010
Charity information: Sheringham Little Theatre - STARS
50 years of successful Rep has taken its toll and in order to provide a further 50 years of successful theatre in Sheringham we need to refurbish and upgrade some of our infrastructure.
Our needs are modest:
A new booking system
The replacement of outmoded technical equipment
The reupholstering of auditorium seating
The redecoration of the Hub coffee bar
To refurbish our facilities after 50 years of successful Summer Rep
Activities» STARS - request to theatre supporters to purchase a starlet (less than £100), star (£100), superstar (£250) or megastar (£500) for display in the Hub
» Drama Queen - Dam Judi Dench launched the new Drama Queen rose for us, and £1 from the sale of each rose will go to our STARS appeal
» Ticket donations - we are asking for a £1 donation for each ticket sold
» 200 Club - a 200 Club will seek to raise funds for STARS with monthly prize draws.
What success will look like
Success will be evidenced by refreshed facilities which will enable the Theatre to continue and thrive for a further 50 years of Summer Rep.
The long term changes our project will bring about will include:
a new booking system
replacement of outmoded technical equipment
reupholstered auditorium seats
redecorated Hub coffee bar
Their success will be demontrated by enhanced customer satisfaction and improved ticket sales.
The only risk associated with the project is the possibility of failing to raise all the funds we require, which would mean we could not implement all the changes we hope for.
We are putting together a new newsletter to keep donors informed of our progress, and have created a new area on our website for STARS updates.

Our facilities are now in need of updating if we are to contine to provide this valued service for a further 50 years.
