Cash stolen from children's theatre
The Basel Children’s Theatre is facing closure after CHF 20,000 was taken from the office.
The theatre puts on productions for kids from disadvantaged backgrounds. The money was due as employee payments and set designs.
The theatre boss, 49 year old Monica Wohlwend says without the money the theatre may have to close. It was unusual such a large amount of money was on the premises, only because a worker was off sick the money hadn’t been taken to the bank.
The money went missing on Saturday night –already one production of Hansel and Gretel had to be cancelled.
