In a similar way members of this community contributed capital to build Founders Theatre fifty-four years ago, it is our intention that the community - through Momentum Waikato - take responsibility of project delivery for a world-class theatre. Working with Hamilton City Council, we will leverage off their planned expenditure to build a new theatre that will serve as a legacy for the region for generations to come.

The Waikato Regional Theatre is a hugely important project for our growing region. We have been heartened by progress so far, and the support we have already received from the public, generous families, community trusts and local councils.

We believe the ability to see this project through is really in the hands of the Waikato community at large, and that this project will not happen without community support.

Please consider joining the movement to create a better Waikato for everyone forever.
