Police believe the lights were taken between 24 June and 8 July.

PC Emma Jackson said: “If anybody has any information about the theft of these specialist lights I would urge them to contact police.

“Work is currently being done on the roof of the theatre using money which theatre staff have raised themselves so this will have a huge impact them.

“Please come forward if you think you can help.”
