THEATRE FORCED TO CLOSE FOR A MONTH TO FIX LEAKY ROOF

first_imgLetterkenny’s popular An Grianan Theatre is to close to the public for a month to allow vital upgrade works to take place.A Grianan Theatre in LetterkennyThe Tirconail Tribune reports that remedial works on the roof are due to begin at the start of April and will take around seven weeks to complete.During that period the theatre will be closed to the public for a period of four weeks and it will also be closed to staff for a fortnight. The 383 seat theatre, which opened in October 1999, has had a roofing problem for some considerable time.A contractor has now being appointed and the Council said they’ve ‘identified the problem with the roof after significant investigation’.The theatre building will be closed to the public for the first four weeks in April, reopening for the hit dieting comedy ‘Weighing In’ on Wednesday 29th April.Director of An Grianan Theatre, Patricia McBride, explained that the works have been planned for a while. “The important thing has been to find a time which will minimise the disruption to those who come to shows, the companies who put on the shows, and to our own staff. After extensive investigation work the problem was identified, the tender to do the remedial work was advertised last August and the Contractor has been appointed but obviously you aren’t going to start work on the roof in the middle of Winter so April is the first reasonable time available to us.“While the leak has meant there has been some minor inconvenience to the people working here corrective work has meant that all our shows have gone ahead as normal, and will continue to do so right up until April. Which means that yes, the new Conal Gallen show ‘A Bit on The Sunny Side’ will definitely go ahead on the 27th & 28th March!’.Daithi Ramsay, Marketing Manager, added ‘There’s no extended holidays for the staff, we’ll be back in after the Easter fortnight, selling tickets on the phone and online and getting prepared for the incoming shows. We’ll also have our production of ‘Frank Pig Says Hello’ on an extensive nationwide tour at that time so we’ll be very busy with that.”However Paddy O’Connor said it did not need rocket science to identify the fact that the roof has been leaking badly for the past three years and the remedial works, while most welcome are long overdue.Mr. O’Conner, who was one of the leading campaigners for a theatre in Letterkenny, said he was thrilled that the theatre’s roofing problems are finally going to be sorted. He said: “As we reach a significant milestone in the life of An Grianan and prepare to welcome our one millionth customer it is very reassuring the roofing problems at our new theatre are finally going to be addressed.The future of the theatre building is now secure so let’s work on bringing shows to Letterkenny that will pack the auditorium,” added Mr. O’Connor.THEATRE FORCED TO CLOSE FOR A MONTH TO FIX LEAKY ROOF was last modified: January 15th, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:An Grianan TheatredonegalleakletterkennyPaddy O’ConnorROOFlast_img read more
