Kingsway au­di­to­rium opens

Wanneroo Times - - Front Page -

KINGSWAY Chris­tian Col­lege has opened its $12 mil­lion state of the art au­di­to­rium.

Con­struc­tion on the 900-seat theatre started in April last year. The new build­ing boasts com­puter-con­trolled LED light­ing and dig­i­tal au­dio sys­tems.

Trans Me­dia Al­liance theatre con­sul­tant and par­ent Rob Scott worked on the de­sign and be­lieved it was the first pur­pose-built 100 per cent dig­i­tal au­dio, video and light­ing theatre in Aus­tralia.

He said LED light­ing was en­ergy ef­fi­cient and re­duced elec­tric­ity costs, while sav­ings were also made by us­ing dig­i­tal au­dio, and in­stead of pro­jec­tors, the theatre fea­tures LED video pan­els that can be used in any con­fig­u­ra­tion.

The project was jointly funded by the school and the State Gov­ern­ment through the Low In­ter­est Loans Scheme, with $700,000 contributed from fundrais­ing.

“Our au­di­to­rium project sees the cul­mi­na­tion of many years of hard work and fore­sight by board mem­bers, par­ents and staff,” prin­ci­pal Peter Bur­ton said.

Mu­sic stu­dents per­formed at the of­fi­cial open­ing this month, which also fea­tured guest speaker Tim Costello, who is chief ad­vo­cate for World Vi­sion.

Kingsway Chris­tian Col­lege’s new $12m au­di­to­rium has lead­ing edge tech­nol­ogy.
