Friends of the Theatre Association
Friends of the Theatre is a social group of theatre goers here on the Costa del Sol who want to enjoy themselves whilst helping the theatre by passing on the funds raised from the events planned by the FOTA Board. These can vary from days out, regular lunches, fashion shows to longer trips to the far reaches of Spain and beyond. Recently there have been trips to Segovia, Santiago de Compostella and Merida, to Salobrena, to Grazalema. Cruises around the Mediterranean and the Canary Islands . There have even been evening meetings to play Scrabble!
You don’t have to be a ‘theatre type’ to join. Most members are audience regulars with a wide range of interests which helps conversations at the lunches and other ‘does’ go with a swing. The main aim is always to enjoy yourselves and raise funds to help the theatre. These are often for specific projects like our sound system or new spotlights. Funds raised are concentrated on ‘front of house’ so it is the audience which gets the benefit.
Why not come along to the theatre bar on Monday, Wednesday or Friday between 11.15 and 1.15 and meet a FOTA helper at the FOTA desk who can tell you more. Keep an eye out for the flyers which advertise shows, usually they are by the box office or on a table. On the back they will tell you more about what is coming from FOTA.
It costs just 10 euro a year to become a member and if you can’t wait to meet at the desk you can phone
Val Williams , FOTA’s President on Tel. 951 313 257 or 722 692 922.
