So as you may have heard through the grapevine, we are in the process of getting designs and funding to build a brand new theatre complex.

The current Little Theatre is over 50 years old and started life as a furniture factory. We have a lot of work to do to it to bring it up to code in regards to earthquake strengthening and from the engineers reports that we have received it was decided to go ‘whole-hog’ and build a new purpose-built theatre complex. We are in the initial stages at the moment with design concepts and feasibility studies but we are already meeting with potential funders and supporters and things are looking very positive.

The design work has been done by Imagine Building Design and is progressing well.
