Fears Manifest Theatre extension won’t be ready in time for new production
12:00pm Wednesday 9th October 2013 in News
A THEATRE is in a race against time to make sure the curtain goes up on a new extension in time for its next show.
The Manifest Theatre’s £45,000 facelift started in June, but time is running out to complete the work before the next season of shows starts in Manningtree.
A Laurel and Hardy film screening has already been cancelled after the work fell behind schedule.
The theatre is also due to stage its next murder mystery drama on October 18 and 19.
Founder member Val Taylor said: “We are running really late.
“We need to put out a call for help to anyone in the community who can help because the first show is on October 18.”
Anyone who can help can should call Val on 01206 393561.
