Take a Seat!

Momentum Waikato’s Share the Stage campaign to fund the new Waikato Regional Theatre has shifted up a gear with the launch of our ‘Take a Seat’ public offer.

Fans of the Theatre now have the opportunity to tangibly show their support for this exciting new performing arts centre being built in the South End of Hamilton’s CBD.

Donate $1500 to the Theatre, either in one go or over several scheduled payments, and you or your family’s name, or your business or group’s title, will be displayed on a seat in the auditorium. 

To donate, either visit sharethestage.co.nz/takeaseat or contact Momentum via momentumwaikato.nz/contact.

If you support this exciting vision and you live anywhere in the Waikato, then please do Take a Seat in the new Waikato Regional Theatre!

Theatre operating company directors appointed

The company that will operate the new Waikato Regional Theatre is a step closer to take-off with the appointment of two directors with extensive venue, performing arts and business experience.

The Theatre, currently under construction in the South End of the Hamilton CBD, will be owned by the Waikato Regional Property Trust (WRPT), which was formed by Momentum Waikato, the community foundation leading the project and driving its fundraising.

Deborah Nudds, the Manager of The Meteor Theatre, and Chris Williams, the CEO of King St Advertising, will join three of the Theatre’s trustees, Ross Hargood, Belinda Mulgrew and Scott Ratuki, to form the inaugural board of the Waikato Regional Theatre Operating Company. They will be joined at a later date by the other trustees, Margi Moore, Ken Williamson and Glenn Holmes.
