The­atre re­vamp sits well

North Harbour News - - NEWS -

A $90,000 re­fur­bish­ment of the au­di­to­rium at Orewa’s Cen­trestage The­atre is now well un­der way.

Be­fore Christ­mas vol­un­teers re­moved seats from the au­di­to­rium then sep­a­rated them from the frames so they could be re-up­hol­stered.

The frames have been sanded down and re­painted and other paint­ing jobs done.

An­other big ef­fort will be needed in the last week of this month to re­assem­ble the seats and in­stall them.

Fund­ing for this proj ect has come from fundrais­ing, do­na­tions and a grant from the ASB Com­mu­nity Trust. The short­fall will be made up by fur­ther fundrais­ing.

Up­com­ing fundrais­ing events in­clude car boot sales on the last Sun­day of the month be­gin­ning in Fe­bru­ary, A Gar­den of Quilts ex­hi­bi­tion by Ngaire Brooks from Fe­bru­ary 10-13, a fashion pa­rade on March 31, and two An­zac con­certs on April 17.

These spe­cial events will com­ple­ment the reg­u­lar garage sales, news­pa­per col­lec­tion and sausage siz­zles.

In ad­di­tion, peo­ple can do­nate $120 to re­fur­bish a seat.

They will then have their name at­tached on a plaque.

Sup­port­ing roles: Graeme and Ros­alie Mayo are busy help­ing re­fur­bish Cen­trestage The­atre. Be­sides the the­atre com­pany, 40 other groups used the fa­cil­ity last year.
