Arts Centre renovations well on their way


Bass Coast Shire Council is pleased with the progress of the Wonthaggi Union Community Arts Centre renovations, with several key milestones well underway.

Bass Coast Shire Council Mayor, Cr Pamela Rothfield, said the project is nothing but exciting for the entire Bass Coast community and its visitors.

“This project will improve access for all theatre-goers, with a lift from the foyer to the theatre”, she said.

“We’ll have better sound & lighting, new toilets, a revamped orchestra pit and a whole re-paint from the foyer to the theatre. New carpet and brand new seating will also be installed. It’s going to be fantastic.”

This project is funded through Bass Coast Shire Council’s 2017/2018 Renewal Program.

The project contractors, local company TS Constructions, will aim to have the project completed by the end of April 2018.

New rigging and all technical works will be completed by HME Services.

The Centre is set to re-open just before the Wonthaggi Theatrical Group’s production of The Boy from Oz which runs from 26 May to 10 June.
