I directed the Gala Opening for the much anticipated State Theatre Centre of WA two years ago. It was an honour to be chosen to direct this event and a privilege to work in this wonderful new building. The WA theatre community had waited 30 years for a state theatre. After a lot of broad consultation and $100 million we now had a state of the art venue housing two theatre spaces in the heart of the arts precinct in Northbridge. The venue piqued the public’s interest and thousands of people came for a look in the first days.
