Municipal Regional Theatre of Crete is about to close!

Municipal Regional Theatre of Crete is facing major economic problems.

Money are not enough to cover every need of DIPETHEK S.A., meanwhile many people of the staff are not paid for 3 to 6 months.

In the last two years DIPETHEK S.A. owes more than 120.000 euros to its suppliers.

As mentioned by the Artistic Director, Michalis Aerakis, only the Municipality of Chania pays its share (having the 58%).

Region of Crete and the rest of the Municipalities of the island are not giving a single euro to DIPETHEK!

“Do we want a theatre? If yes… what kind of?”, said Mr. Aerakis in a meeting on Saturday morning about the major problems of the theatre.
