Performers excited by centre development

A spokesman for Horsham district’s busy amateur theatre group is confident Wimmera audiences will  be ‘blown away’ by new live-entertainment experiences that a redeveloped Horsham Town Hall will offer.

Horsham Arts Council president Simon Dandy said performing arts were already thriving in the region but the new centre would take opportunities to another level.

“We just can’t wait. We already do some great shows with what we have but we’re going to be able to do so much more,” he said.

The multi million-dollar town hall redevelopment, which includes a purpose-built performing arts auditorium, continues to take shape amid performances of various amateur theatre productions across the region.

The building, in the heart of the central business district,  has gradually become the most dominant landmark on the Horsham skyline.

Mr Dandy, who with fellow council members has been busy with a sell-out junior production of Peter Pan, said the redevelopment would provide Horsham with a strong cultural base for many years to come.

“I truly believe that after it’s developed and people get to experience what it offers, people will be saying ‘why didn’t this happen five years ago?’. It will enhance everything for everyone. It won’t only be great for local productions – but also big-name acts,” he said.

Mr Dandy added that construction was nearing completion in a year that the council was celebrating its 50th anniversary.
