An alternative form of investing in the theatre is launched with The Theatre Fund

Monday, November 28, 2011
Opalesque Industry Update - The Theatre Fund, a new alternative to the traditional theatre investment model, will launch in November 2011. Advised by Act Productions Limited, an established leading theatre producer, The Theatre Fund will give individual investors the opportunity to participate in the continuing success of West End theatre production, and through its innovative structure will offer unique advantages including:
  • Significant tax advantages (unlike traditional theatre production investment) for qualifying investors, under the Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS). These include up-front income tax relief of 30% and profits free of capital gains or income tax;
  • An enhanced percentage financial participation for investors (including a 70% share of profits compared with the traditional 60%, and participation in pre and post-recoupment producer royalties traditionally retained by the producer);
  • Diversification of investment risk across a professionally selected portfolio of productions (in contrast with the traditional theatre investment model where profit or loss on investment is solely dependent on the success or failure of one show);
  • The opportunity to invest in all Act Production shows, including those ineligible under The Theatre Fund criteria;
  • Additional privileges as available, including complimentary tickets to opening night or preview performances, invitations to meet cast, and access to VIP house seats across the West End.
