Hale Centre Theatre Behind The Scenes
Hale Centre Theatre (HCT) is rapidly rising out of the ground and is now only a year away from entertaining families from around the state with high-quality performances, in what is being called the most magical, technologically-advanced theater-in-the-round in the world. And we couldn’t be more pleased to welcome them to Sandy City as the crown jewel of our Cairns City Center development.
With 24,000 season ticket holders, the excitement continues to build as both long-time patrons and new theater converts anxiously wait for the curtain to rise. With that in mind, HCT and Sandy City unveiled the first sneak peek inside the theater, complete with a 3-D model of the theater-in-the-round; the new, roomier seats; interior color swatches and a rendering of the exterior.
Having always been part of the community, they are now giving the community an opportunity to be a part of the theater, forever, with a name plaque on an interior wall. The Play Your Part campaign details can be found at www.hct.org.
The 467-seat horseshoe-shaped Jewel Box theater opens in September 2017 with Forever Plaid.
The 900-seat theater-in-the-round opens in November 2017 with the highly-anticipated Aida.
Having outgrown its current 613-seat facility, the new Hale Centre Theatre will be able to increase performances from 400 to 500 in 2017, growing to more than 700 performances with its two theaters.
130,000 square foot, two-theater complex is well under construction at its new location, 9886 S. Monroe Street in Sandy.
