Almost £18,000 has now been raised to secure the long-term future of The Seagull Theatre in Pakefield.
The Raise the Roof campaign was launched in August last year after concerns were raised over the theatre's leaking and crumbling roof.
There were fears a harsh winter and heavy rainfall could cause studios and activities to close.
The campaign aims to raise £40,000 in a year to repair collapsing parts of the ceiling and boarded-up windows.
And since then the donations have been flooding in, with £17,788 now in the fundraising pot - 44pc of the total needed.
