BRIDGEPORT – The Bijou Theatre on Fairfield Avenue will be closing on Sunday, unless an effort by staff and community members can save it.

There is a gofundme page to try to keep the theater from closing. The page states:

The Bijou has built a reputation in its short time open as a theatre that produces bold, thought-provoking plays and musicals that are rarely produced. This gives our audience the chance to see a shows they may not otherwise see, and our performers the chance to play roles they may not get to play again.

Our $100k goal is to clear the theatre’s current debt and cover expenses to remain open for the remainder of 2016.  Believe us when we say that any little bit helps an incredible amount. The downtown community and beyond does not want to see this fantastic venue close its doors!
