Why we need funding now
Current measures mean that audiences must be socially distanced. To do this, we have worked out a plan with CC Amstel to perform in the round. Even so, we can only fit in 100 seats in a theatre for 154 people - a big loss of ticket revenue. For audiences though it means being intimately close to the action, whilst still safely 1.5 metres apart.
The Amsterdam Zuid Buurtbudget allows residents and businesses to apply for funding that benefits locals. As part of our application we want to offer reduced ticket prices, advertise the plays and venue in Amsterdam Zuid and bring people back to what we love - live theatre, in a safe way. We are through to the next round so in September residents of Zuid will be able to vote again to kickstart live theatre.
It's time to come back together.
