The Southsea venue will give the ticket to one person who contributes to its ‘Pounds for Pennies’ crowdfunding scheme.

Every person who donates will automatically be put into a draw to win the ticket, which will entitle the winner to an unlimited number of shows for a year.

The initiative, which was launched at the start of the month, is raising money for the refurbishment of the theatre’s dress circle toilets.
