THE popular Teatro Capitol in Rojales is to receive an injection of funds in order to carry out a series of upgrades and refurbishments.

With a budget of €200,000, the works will include improvements in the security system, the lighting and acoustics…the latter long being an issue for many that have performed in the building.

The plans also include a remodelling of the entire front of the stage as well as the relaying of the wooden stage itself which will go some way to improve both the overall look and sound of the main part of the theatre.

The stage will see a fire screen or safety curtain installed and the construction of a separate lobby between the stage and the green room with access from a new double-door.

Further works planned include addressing the issues of certain restricted viewing areas, better access to and from the stalls, new lighting for the stage and the theatre, and the installation of a generator as insurance against power failures in what is a public building.

Culture councillor Inmaculada Chazarra said: “These works are necessary because the passage of time has made many of the existing facilities obsolete.”
