UPDATE ON HACKETT HALL

 

Playlovers win!

It is with great pleasure that I can announce that Playlovers has won their stoush with the City of Nedlands, and the Hackett Hall lockout is over! An article from last week’s Post newspaper tells the tale.

Our ‘knight in shining armour’, Mark Burns, delivered our home back into our hands with a resounding win at the State Administrative Tribunal recently.

In the short term there are a number of hurdles that we are required to jump before we can get back into the hall,(it has been vacant for a whole year!) and your committee is working with Mark to make sure that these hurdles are cleared comprehensively and in the appropriate timeframe.  The view will be to put Playlovers on the community theatre landscape back in its own venue with a full program of seasons in 2018.

Please stay tuned to Playlovers newsletter for information in regards to our future at Hackett Hall. And in the meantime, please continue to support Playlovers in our October/November production of “The Jungle Book” at Camelot Theatre in Mosman Park.

I can’t pass up this opportunity to whole-heartedly give thanks to Mark Burns for his unwavering support of Playlovers, and his dedication in seeing us get our home back.  We will be forever grateful!

Alex McLennan,
Playlovers President
