The Warehouse Studio Theatre


warehouse studio theatreIn 1994, the American Theatre Company, the English Comedy Club and the Irish Theatre Group purchased a complex now known as The Warehouse at Rue Waelhem 69A, 1030 Schaerbeek. It now houses a club room, two rehearsal rooms, a workshop for set construction, a props room, a costume room and storage space for sets. The groups also bought the adjoining ceramics workshop, which was then transformed into a 65-seat studio theatre.

These three community theatre groups also form the Co-operative Association to Support Theatre (CAST), which meets every month to discuss management and maintenance issues. Since 1994, generous individual and corporate donations of over €250 000 have helped pay for the constant upkeep of the property.
