RED KETTLE THEATRE COMPANY

Waterford Council has heard with regret that Red Kettle Theatre Company will enter liquidation. A note on the company’s Facebook page said the company will close on Friday August 15.

The note reads…“It is with heavy hearts that we close the doors to Red Kettle tomorrow on what has been an epic adventure. To everyone who has joined us on our journey, thank you. With every door that closes another opens and we ask you to bear with us here because the future looks bright and we will be back. See you soon, The Red Kettle Team”

Waterford Council is proud to have been involved with the theatre company over the past 29 years. In 2013 it aided the company’s move to Central Hall with a grant towards the venue rent which it repeated again this year. Also in 2013 it aided the company by loaning it Lighting, Sound and Staging equipment. The company was also a recipients of a number of arts grants specific to agreed programmes – a number of which were successfully concluded.

The Council notes that efforts are ongoing to secure the theatre company’s legacy. The Council will work to, hopefully, ensure the continuation of the former company’s valuable programmes for youth, adults and arts practitioners alike.
