From the Playhouse:

The Playhouse isn’t getting any younger, and needs a full refurbishment if it’s to endure long-term.

The Repertory Society are undertaking a feasibility study of this – looking at what a refurbishment would involve, how much it might cost, and whether it’s needed by the community.

A key part of the study is being able to show the value and impact the theatre - particularly our Children's Theatre - has on its audiences, casts, crews and their families. 

Please support us by completing this survey, we would love to hear your thoughts.

From Feldspar Associates:

Feldspar Associates have been appointed by the Dunedin Repertory Society Trust to carry out the Playhouse feasibility study described above.

We have developed this survey to help us understand how the existing Playhouse building is used and what a future, redeveloped Playhouse might look like.

When responding to this survey, please remember the Playhouse is not a professional theatre, it is run by a dedicated team of hard-working volunteers. 

The online survey will take around 5-10 minutes to complete and will be open until 30 April 2021. Please do let us know if you have any problems or if you have anything further to add – projects@feldspar.co.nz

Thank you for your time.
