Camperdown Royal Theatre

October 16, 2018

The historical Royal Theatre is an iconic landmark right in the heart of Camperdown.

Richard Riordan MP supports the plan that will continue to ensure the longevity of the theatre by the opposition’s commitment of $1,000,000 towards vital additions and upgrades to the theatre.

The upgrades will include a new heating and cooling system and replacement of seating in the balcony section. Theatre goers will benefit from a more enjoyable experience with new sound and lighting upgrades.

The Theatre is the Corangamite Shire’s only preforming arts venue and serves the varied needs of a large rural community including school groups, theatre groups and The Camperdown and District Historical Society.

Only the opposition will maintain our cultural assets, particularly in our regional communities.

“The community, council and performing arts groups have all advocated on behalf of their historical theatre and we are here today to tell everyone their hard work hasn’t gone unnoticed,” Mr Riordan said. “Camperdown families have been coming and enjoying the performances at the theatre for generations. This funding will ensure this can continue long into the future.”
