South Otago Theatre Society’s (SOTS) Balclutha renovations are well under way with solid groundwork, SOTS veteran Brent Gardiner said.
‘‘Due to present difficulties in staging shows we thought we’d use the time to upgrade our small theatre.
‘‘The stage area developed problems over the years with squeals and the odd cast member falling through, so we’re replacing the whole floor area with a quality, $35,000 project helped along with a sponsorship scheme called “Tread the boards”.
For $100 a board, individuals and businesses can help us cover the floor, and all sponsors will be featured on a plaque in the foyer, with Friends, Gold and Platinum options depending on how many boards they’d like to put down.
SOTS social media has all the information for anyone interested in coming on board, and we’d also really like to thank the Begg Trust, Clutha Foundation and the Otago Community Trust for their generous support.’’
