WE ARE ON THE MOVE
Our South Townsville premises, home to TheatreiNQ for the past 9 years, has been sold. But we see this as a great opportunity for the company to take the next step forward - to grow - to expand - to continue to 'make a difference' in our community.
And we could use your help . . . .
HELP US TAKE THE NEXT STEP
We can excitedly announce that we have secured a new home for the Company in Hyde Park. The new building will offer us a larger rehearsal studio, as well as office space, storage for props and costumes, a creation workshop and technical storage. However, there is much work to do - specifically in getting the rehearsal space fit for our purposes.
The building has a cement floor so we will need to lay suitable flooring in the large new rehearsal space.
Estimated Cost: $25,000
We live and work n the tropics - so air-conditioning is a must for a least 8 months of the year. And its a big space!! (As we will be leasing the building, the cooling system will need to be transportable to any new space we may lease in the future.)
Estimated Cost: $45,000
For further insulation and sound-proofing, we will need to hang thick wool theatre curtains throughout the rehearsal space.
Estimated Cost: $30,000
To run the air-conditioning, we will need to pay for an upgrade to the power supply accessible to the building.
Estimated Cost: $40,000
Fortunately, we have anticipated this day would eventually come when we would need to take this bold leap forward and have been raising and saving money for this very occasion. We have already raised almost $90,000 to go towards our New Home Fund but we need your help to raise the rest.
TOTAL ESTIMATED COST: $140,000.
AMOUNT LEFT TO RAISE: $50,000.
