The future of the Hopgood Theatre has been secured

After an extensive consultation campaign that concluded earlier this year, we are pleased to advise the future of the Hopgood Theatre has now been secured following the approval from the State Government of a 25-year lease agreement between TAFE SA and the City of Onkaparinga, with the operation of the theatre officially handed over to the council.

As part of the agreement, a grant of $6 million was also provided to the City of Onkaparinga for the refurbishment of the theatre.

Improvements to the theatre, with pre-development work currently underway, will include maintenance work, the re-roofing of the theatre and an upgrade to sound and lighting systems.
