Theatre director Debbie Thompson said: “We are a little theatre, and that poses problems. We have 160 seats, but need them to be 75-80pc full to make shows financially viable. However, under social distancing, we could only fill half of them.

The Little Theatre is planning extra fundraising events of its own, but it is also asking people to make donations via a button on the front page of its website www.sheringhamlittletheatre.com

Mrs Thompson said: “The first shows to return are likely to be smaller events for theatre members and Friends.

“Anyone keen not to miss out, can become a member of Friend on the website. Joining will provide extra income for the theatre.”
