New theatre an opportunity for Hamilton

20 November 2017

A revitalised CBD and creative arts community in Hamilton is likely with the building of a new performing arts theatre in the city, according to backers of the plan.

Hamilton has been without a theatre capable of holding performances from full symphony orchestras, ballet companies and major stage productions for some time.

The situation was made worse last year when the 54-year-old Founders Theatre closed, although it had struggled for years to keep up with modern innovations in the theatre world.
