FINAL PHASE OF THE FLY TOWER EXTENSION IS COMPLETED

March also saw the completion of the final phase of work extending the Theatre’s fly tower.  The extension benefits the Theatre in many ways, enhancing its beauty and our ability to attract the finest productions.   It now houses a steel frame over the top of the building to provide a new technical grid for the stage, and two new floors of administration and production offices which we are now settling into.
