Feasibility report released into new Waikato Regional Theatre


August 25, 2017

A comprehensive feasibility report for a new Waikato Regional Theatre has been presented to the Hamilton City Council, recommending a river-facing performing arts centre with flexible functionality.

Intended to replace Founders Theatre - closed for safety reasons in March 2016 - the design proposes an 1,100-seat theatre, shared public spaces and a public art gallery, to be located at the old Hamilton Hotel site on Victoria Street.
