The new Waikato Regional Theatre has moved into another stage with Hamilton City Council provisionally allocating funding in its draft 2018-28 10-Year Plan. 

At a meeting in early December, Hamilton City councillors agreed to set aside money for the Waikato Regional Theatre, although the Council still has to approve the 10-Year Plan and associated funding in 2018. 

Proposed funding includes $25 million towards building the theatre (spread over three years) and an annual grant of $1.1 million for 20 years once the theatre is open in 2021.
