Mr president where are the theatres? – Clemento Suarez asks
Ghanaian comedian Clemento Suarez has appealed to President Akufo-Addo to fulfill the NPP’s manifesto promise to put up regional theatres in the country.
The comedian reiterated the concerns that the absence of theatres in the regions, especially when it comes to securing venues to premiere movies and for stage productions, is one of the problems hindering the growth of the sector.
Over the years, there have been talks of how the lack of theatres in the regions is affecting the creative industry, and Clemento Suarez sounded the clarion call when he spoke with Graphic Showbiz. According to him, it came as a big relief when the ruling NPP stated in their 2016 manifesto that they will build regional theatres but to date not much has been done.
