Just in time for the Capital Jazz Project tomorrow the Street Theatre has officially reopened after it’s $3 million dollar face-lift.
It looks quite nice.
So nice in fact that face-lift is probably doing it an injustice. There has been some serious work done here including:
— A new office area with space available for touring shows,
— Improved acoustics for Street 2 so you can’t hear people ordering their coffees while you try and watch a show,
— An massive overhall of the foyer and cafe area with more room and natural light,
— and a huge dedicated rehearsal venue out the back.
Joy Burch was on hand to officially re-open the theatre today, which she promised was only the first of multiple new and improved arts hubs that would be opening across Canberra this year.
