Project Two – The Ben Gough Family Theatre

Your Legacy, Our Future fundraising campaign for our new Fitness Centre and The Ben Gough Family Theatre.

The St Andrew’s College Board has approved two building projects to complete our new Fitness Centre and Theatre Complex. The development of The Ben Gough Family Theatre is the next major building project on the St Andrew’s College campus. This exciting facility will be a hub for many Secondary and Preparatory School students who take part in a wide variety of cultural pursuits at the College. Work is scheduled to start in December 2020 and will be completed by mid 2022.

Background

The St Andrew’s College Drama Club began in 1921. Cultural pursuits have always been an integral part of life at the College. Students immersed in the arts are encouraged to think critically, be culturally aware, take risks, communicate ideas and express themselves.

Hundreds of people in the St Andrew’s community visit the Theatre each year to watch our enthusiastic, talented students perform in top quality theatre and ballet productions, music performances and dance revues. The Theatre is also a place where students can learn to participate in behind the scenes roles, such as sound, music and lighting, costumes, make‑up, set design, props, stage management, directing and producing.

The new Ben Gough Family Theatre is an exciting development, with upgraded facilities to match the incredible talents of our students.

Features of The Ben Gough Family Theatre development include:

  • larger stage and backstage areas;
  • enhanced sound and lighting;
  • new designated areas for changing and storage;
  • a larger entranceway and foyer with space for food facilities;
  • greater comfort for the audience.
