A look back at 2021, our accomplishments and ambition

Another year dominated by the Covid-19 pandemic with wave after wave hitting our islands as new variations and mutations of the malady evolved. Another year with Teatru Astra bolted shut. The only form of theatrical activity on stage was limited to a trickle of recorded stage productions without audience participation or heavily restricted. On the other hand, manual labour was very evident at the complex throughout the year. All the projects enumerated in 2020 progressed sufficiently enough so that by year's end a very clear picture of the changes which materialised, was very evident.

The projects already finished and on steam include the installation of the photo-voltaic panels on the Theatre's roof, the theatre's brand new two-tiered dressing rooms, the music teaching studio and two lifts for the Theatre's patrons including the persons with special needs. The lower part of the imposing facade was also cleaned and returned to its former glory. The Joseph Vella rehearsal hall cum recording studio is all roofed up and is awaiting internal refurbishment. The largest upheaval concerns the theatre's foyer and entrance hall. These were stripped to bare stone, structural changes undertaken and presently undergoing the finishing touches. The end result should be a very modern eye-catching set-up inducing one to an evening of relaxation and well being in harmonious surroundings dominated by a well-balanced colour scheme. As things presently stand, with the malady controlled, management invites all theatre patrons to a winter and spring programme dominated by a four-night production of "Sister Act" and an autumn 2022 Mediterranea festival offering the elusive opera "Carmen".
