Help us to keep Oxford Playhouse open.
Playhouse Plays On…
These are extraordinary times. Following the government’s announcement on 16 March, we took the heart-breaking decision to close Oxford Playhouse for the first time in over 30 years. The wellbeing and safety of our audiences, our artists and our staff is our first priority.
But we need your help now more than ever.
We are a charity with limited resources and meagre reserves, and we rely on ticket sales for over 80% of our income year in, year out. The Playhouse employs over 100 regular staff and many more freelance artists every year. We are a family, and a vital part of the local community and economy, and we are doing everything we can to support our staff, artists and partners in the city and beyond at this challenging time. We know it’s the right thing to do.
In order to survive this incredibly difficult situation we are asking our audiences, our community, and our friends to donate to our Playhouse Plays On Appeal. We want to continue to present and produce over 800 events every year, for our audiences and within our communities in Oxford and beyond. We want to continue to work with over 15,000 children and adults each year through our learning and participation projects. We want to welcome you, our audiences, back through the doors.
Oxford Playhouse is a Playhouse for everyone.
In the toughest of times to come, we will need theatre and the arts more than ever. Many of the artists that will soothe our spirits in the months ahead were nurtured and trained in British theatre. Some of them here at Oxford Playhouse.
With my deepest thanks to our partners, the incredible Board and Staff at the Playhouse, and to YOU.
Stay Safe Oxfordshire! Together we’ll get through and we will be back…
