I’M TIRED OF TALKING ABOUT THE CONDITION OF THE NATIONAL THEATRE – Fiifi Coleman fumes

Ghanaian actor, Fiifi Coleman has expressed his frustration over the ongoing discussions about the deteriorating condition of the National Theatre.

The actor has been a vocal advocate for the privatization of the National Theatre as a solution to its problems but feels that his suggestions have been ignored.

He highlighted the sorry state of the theatre, with dirty carpets and serious leaks during rainy weather.

Speaking during an interview with Peace FM on Saturday, September 16, 2023, Fiifi Coleman criticized the authorities for not accepting assistance from individuals who are willing to help address the issues.

“I decided not to talk about their issues because I’ve said it several times but they [National Theatre authorities] don’t mind me. I can’t just give up that they are not heeding my suggestions. Whenever it rains the place leaks. The first suggestion I made they said because it’s a state enterprise we can’t privatize it, that’s not how it works.

“But then my question is, why has there been interest from individuals saying that give me the contracts of, I will fix the air conditions here and get a portion of the revenue generated from rent? Have you seen the red carpet at the theatre, ask when was the last time it was washed or swept. The red color of the carpet has now turned brownish,” he fumed.

He called upon the National Theatre authorities to embrace support from willing individuals to prevent further deterioration of this cultural institution.

“I can tell you on authority that there have been discussions about people who want to come and help with the provision of equipment or whatever it is. But the only way the person can get his investment back is to be in a contract with the authorities and specify the amount allocated to the individual depending on the programs held there.

“If the government cannot do it to bring income to the economy and some individuals are interested, we should encourage them, because if it succeeds, it benefits everyone. Nobody is coming to brand National Theatre but if privatization is a possibility, they should open it up for people to come and help,” Fiifi Coleman opined.
