Help keep Croydon’s Warehouse Theatre open - now playing Call Mr. Robeson. A Life, with Songs
A campaign has been launched to save Croydon’s Warehouse Theatre, which is under threat of closure following cuts in arts funding.
The theatre has gone into administration after the loss of an Arts Council grant, coupled with Croydon Council’s refusal to provide the necessary funds to keep it afloat.
The Warehouse has been the springboard for the careers of numerous actors and comedians including Cate Blanchett, Eddie Izzard, Ben Elton, Lenny Henry and Dawn French, as well as playwrights Peter Moffatt and Kevin Hood, whose work was showcased as part of the theatre’s long-running annual International Playwriting Festival.
“We all love this rather battered old building and what we are able to produce inside it,” says artistic director Ted Craig. “We are launching a campaign to raise money urgently to keep the theatre open.”
The theatre's administration is being handled by Jeremy Frost of the Frost Group.
