St. Peter’s Theatre in Southsea is under threat of closure, and unless action is taken now, this beautiful theatre will be lost forever. It is one of only six amateur theatres in the UK with a fly tower (for flying backcloths and scenery). It is regularly used by many local theatre groups including three theatre schools, one of which (Victoryland Theatre School) is based at the theatre.
