Hamilton City Theatres review
Between late 2012 and late 2014, Hamilton City Council reviewed its theatre assets – Founders Theatre, The Meteor and Clarence Street Theatre. The review explored the city's future theatre needs and assessed whether the three theatres met the needs of the city, its residents, and its performing arts community.
The Theatres Review included a public submissions period, and resulted in three key outcomes:
- The gifting of The Meteor to the One Victoria Trust
- The gifting of the Clarence Street Theatre to the Clarence Street Theatre Trust
- Investigation into remedial and development work for Founders Theatre will be undertaken in the 2015-2016 financial year.
