LONDON PUB THEATRES MAGAZINE MISSION STATEMENT
Our magazine exists to celebrate and unite pub theatres.
To raise the profile of these theatres and win new audiences.
To inform theatre makers about the opportunities at these theatres
To inform potential audiences about the theatres and the shows currently in production
To continue to be one of the major exponents of their work.
We are delighted to emphasise the differences too. Each pub theatre is unique, offering its own flavour to the mix. We endorse this.
WHY DO WE WANT TO DO THIS?
LONDON PUB THEATRES HAVE MUCH TO OFFER
Benefits to Theatre makers:
The theatres offer established artists a platform for their work
They give opportunities to those entering the industry
They give opportunities to disabled performers
They give opportunities to companies bringing work from regional theatres and companies who are touring
It's a place to try out new work including new writing
A place to bring new productions of older plays
A place to show re-discovered plays (sometimes never seen before) and radical re-inventions of known work
Benefits to theatre audiences:
They offer a voice to those who are not always heard
They are able to react immediately to current affairs
They are right at the heart of the community
Older plays (that might not be seen elsewhere) are staged thereby keeping theatrical history alive.
Some theatres have performance nights specifically set up for people with disabilities
Ticket prices are very reasonable with a broad spectrum of concessions
We are actively looking for patrons able to support our work. If you would like to get involved please get in touch with the editor Heather Jeffery, firstname.lastname@example.org
