Why theatre space is not widely patronized in Ghana- George Quaye explains


Famous Ghanaian playwright and ImageBureau CEO, George Quaye, has revealed insight into why theater in Ghana battles with low support, crediting it to a verifiable impression of theater as a free product.


Talking on Hitz FM, Quaye featured that numerous Ghanaians have become used to consuming performance center without paying, an outlook established in the past when theater creations were frequently presented at no expense. Quaye emphasized the significance of changing this mentality and urged stakeholders to work together rather than compete.


"I've been asked ordinarily for what valid reason I share many individuals' plays in any event, while I'm running my plays. Why? Since we can't contend. We really want to team up. We can't compete because we haven't progressed to the same level as the musicians. Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale can compete. Samini and Sarkodie can both compete. Ruler Commitment and KiDi, Kuami Eugene, they can all contend.


They can because they are recognized worldwide, he stated. He drew comparisons to the global recognition of the music industry, pointing out that, whereas musicians like Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale can command high ticket prices, theater productions struggle to attract the same number of patrons.


To cultivate development, Quaye pushed for an aggregate work to change individuals' insights about venue's worth, focusing on that it's a work of art meriting monetary help and acknowledgment.
