More funding wanted for waterfront theatre

9:26 am on 2 March 2012

Auckland Theatre Company is seeking $1 million from the public for a new waterfront venue.

It wants to build a 600 seat theatre and 200 seat auditorium at Wynyard Quarter.

Just over half the funding for the $41 million project is already in place. But $18.5 million remains outstanding and Auckland Council has set a deadline of May.


General manager Lester McGrath says all donations will be held in trust and will be returned to donors in the event the theatre is not built.
