My Theatre Matters Campaign
11 April 2013
Northern Ireland members should sign up as a supporter on the My Theatre Matters! website. Would members, for example, go and hand out campaign postcards at local theatres?
If you are willing to take more action, please get in touch with your Equity organsier to talk about how to make it happen.
Please do not approach any local theatres before talking to your organsier. Not every TMA and ITC theatre has signed up to the campaign yet.
This campaign will be given top priority by Equity during 2013 and if you would like someone to come to a future branch meeting to talk about the campaign please let me know. There is a special campaign briefing sheet for Equity Branch Secretaries which can be downloaded from the Equity web site and you can follow the campaign on Twitter: @theatre_matters.
Are you working on stage at the moment? Could you give a curtain call speech to your audience? If you could, please contact the organiser local to the theatre where you are working - contact details here: http://www.equity.org.uk/contact-us/equity-offices/
You won't have to write the speech yourself - we can give you a draft speech to read.
This is an enormously important campaign for the future of your local theatre
