Supporting the Theatre

The Joseph Rowntree Theatre Ltd is always looking to improve the facilities available to both its users and theatre patrons. Over the past years several large project improvements have been made, including:-

  • installation of a new stage lighting system with expanded capabilities
  • installation of a new sound system
  • complete replacement of seating and carpets and redecoration of the entire internal fabric returning to the original colour scheme
  • reinstatement of the original auditorium lighting
  • a new heating system

There are many other improvements that still need to be made, many of them smaller specific projects.

Supporting the Joseph Rowntree Theatre

There are a number of ways in which you can support the work of the trustees and volunteers, either by making a one off donation, sponsoring an auditorium seat or making a regular monthly donation.

A form for donating in any of these ways can be found below — and thank you for helping to support community theatre in York.
