Shetland Arts is inviting members of the public interested in having their say on the future of theatre in Shetland to come along to a discussion at The Garrison on Thursday 15 January, 6-7pm.
General Manager of Shetland Arts’, Graeme Howell, said: “We are looking to enter into a discussion with interested parties about how best to encourage and support the development of theatre in Shetland. In particular, we want to discuss how the Garrison Theatre can be best used as a centre and springboard for that development.”
He added, “We’re keen to hear thoughts and suggestions from all corners and would encourage anyone interested in the topic to come along and let their voice be heard.”
Shetland Arts is a registered charity (SCO37082) that manages the Garrison Theatre, and promotes a year round programme of theatre, music, craft, literature, visual arts, dance, and film events.
The Garrison is a traditional proscenium arch theatre. Dating back over 110 years it is an historic venue and Shetland's only theatre. It hosts a varied annual programme of community and professional shows, including live theatre, concerts, pantomime, and dance. The Theatre was originally built in 1903/4 but has had many upgrades since then.
