UPDATE: Friday October 29
Negotiations are under way to save The Globe theater from it’s November 30 eviction deadline, a theatre spokesperson today said.
Spokesperson for the Globe, Blaire Gillespie, said the Brunswick street theatre was in negotiations with their landlord to remain open until a new Fortitude Valley venue can be found.
Ms Gillespie said the theater had no plans to close it’s doors to the public as shows were booked until June next year.
“We have no intention of closing, we intend to open up a new venue,” she said.
More details on the Globe theatre contract to come early next week.
A spokesperson for the Globe Theatre in Fortitude Valley says the organisation is looking for volunteers to help it move after its landlord doubled the rent.
Blaire Gillespie says the theatre needs to raise $160,000 to move across Brunswick Street, and is looking for a fundraising crew including poster designers, musicians, photographers and video camera operators, lifters and carriers, sausage sizzlers and other fundraisers. The theatre is also collecting donations.
