Success on the Petition to save Marian Street Theatre

Posted on 7 July, Friday

Marian Street Theatre, Killara, has been closed since 2013. We wanted this iconic building reopened, so the adults and children of Ku-ring-gai can again have a professional performing arts space where the theatre may be enjoyed by all. For this to occur, some building works must be undertaken.

A voluntary committee from the community, including Luke Playoust from Playoust Churcher Architects, has now been established to raise the money to carry out these works. For its part, Council has been requested to make a public commitment to safeguarding the theatre’s future.

The committee requested and got approval for Ku-ring-gai Municipal Council to:
1) Commit immediately to the preservation of the Marian Street Theatre.

2) Authorise the voluntary ‘Save Marian Street Theatre’ committee to begin raising the funds to reopen the theatre as a sustainable cultural hub, guaranteeing that all funds raised go towards Marian Street Theatre
