A THEATER company has used the profits from their shows to donate a large sum of money for the upkeep of the building in which they rehearse and perform.
Last November, The Helston Theater Company hosted Movies To Musicals, a sold-out song and dance show to benefit the Epworth Center in Helston, where they rehearse and perform the majority of their productions.
The company is delighted to announce that the benefit of the show is added to the collections that were made after each performance; the money they had raised from Aladdin in 2020 and the Tell Me On A Sunday dress rehearsal in 2021, they were able to donate the incredible sum of £ 4,500 to the Epworth Center.
The money will be allocated to the costs of the ongoing renovation of the hall.
Plans are in place to transform the hall into a community building that can then serve the entire city.
The old Methodist Chapel Hall reopened in November.
The Helston Theater Company’s next production will be the comedic pantomime Robin Hood which premieres at Epworth Hall January 26-30.
The title role of Robin is played by John England and he recently presented a bag of ‘gold coins’ to Sarah Reed, director of the Epworth Center, who will be assigned to ongoing building improvements, including new toilets.
The Epworth Center offers a variety of spaces for community use ranging from the large Epworth Hall, which the Helston Theater Company uses as a theater, to smaller venues on the ground floor – “in the community, for the community”. a room at the Epworth Center can contact Sarah Reed for more information at [email protected]
