ACTOR Peter Egan opened a new bar at The Mill at Sonning.
The bar is situated in the theatre’s riverside restaurant and was paid for with a donation from supporters Dave and Liz Lawrence.
Egan, who was the theatre’s first artistic director, attended the opening to thank the couple personally.
Sally Hughes, who is the current artistic director as well as being managing director, said: “Since introducing the Friends of The Mill club and The Mill Angels, I have been amazed and grateful for the wonderful support and obvious love for the theatre.
“Our select group of Mill Angels have helped us with sets, costumes, house lights and now the bar — I could just hug Liz and Dave.
“The refurbishment of the Grade II listed Mill takes a lot of resources and I have an exciting vision about how it should ultimately look. With our Angels and Friends helping, it shouldn’t take too long and we will have lots of fun along the way with great shows, delicious food and exciting events.
“We have a great line-up of plays for the year, culminating in our Christmas musical this year which will be Singin’ in the Rain — and, yes, there will be rain on stage!”
