    The McGowan Government has allocated $93,000 for upgrades to the Limelight Theatre in Wanneroo, allowing for the installation of new stage curtains, foyer furniture and a new storage area for the theatre's equipment.

     

    The Limelight Theatre, run by Wanneroo Repertory Inc, is a not-for-profit organisation established more than 40 years ago, which hosts six theatrical productions a year.

     

    It recently released its five-year strategic plan to extend the use of their facilities for other activities and events outside of the organisation and to strengthen its relationships with local schools, other theatre organisations, the City of Wanneroo and the local community.

     

    Comment attributed to Culture and the Arts Minister David Templeman:

     

    "As part of this Government's commitment to a Creative WA, our programs will continue to invest in the unique and talented creative people of this State."

     

    Comments attributed to Wanneroo MLA Sabine Winton:

     

    "The Limelight Theatre is a fantastic local organisation that has played an important role in developing and promoting the arts in Wanneroo.

     

    "It's exciting that the theatre is determined to expand the use of their facilities for other activities and further engage with local schools, the City of Wanneroo and the local Wanneroo community.

     

    "This allocation will assist the theatre in achieving its aim and strengthening the arts in our community."
