Urgent replacements will be made to a range of outdated equipment backstage, helping make the theatre more environmentally sustainable, cost-effective and safer to run.
Lighting will be transformed with energy saving fittings throughout and equipment purchased to make it easier to stage and look after the Theatre’s increasing range and volume of productions.
A new washing machine has been installed in the Theatre’s laundry room which will provide the Wardrobe Manager with better facilities to maintain costumes.
The Theatre’s workshop has also had its paint bridge refurbished to increase its longevity, which enables its scenic artists to paint cloths and scenery at height safely. The paint bridge is an asset to the Theatre as there are not many paint bridges left in London.
