The Fugard Theatre closed permanently

16th March 2021

Dear Friends of The Fugard Theatre,

After a year of Covid closure it is with great regret and sadness that I have to confirm that The Fugard Theatre will close permanently with immediate effect.

We are not persuaded that it will be Covid safe or financially viable to reopen as a theatre in the foreseeable future.

The theatre will be handed back to the owner of the freehold of the building – the board of The District 6 Museum – as a working theatre and we hope that they will be able to use it for the benefit of the Museum and the District 6 community.

I thank our extraordinary staff for all their hard work and you, our patrons, for your support for The Fugard over the last ten years.

Stay well and take care.

Fugard Theatre Founder, producer and benefactor Eric Abraham
