We're on our way! First $500 in the bag!
3 WEEKS AGO
With 23 days to left to run, we've made it to 17% towards our
$3000 goal. It's great to see some runs on the board, thanks to the
generosity of our early donors and, of course, all the people who
enjoyed a cuppa and a slice of home baking at interval at Alan
Bennett's Talking Heads last weekend! The 4 monologues were
presented as a special fundraising event by director Sharyn
Hildreth, producer Amanda Jackson and 4 local actors - Eleanore
McLean, Jane Sutherland, John Cocking and myself - Andy

intimate space which is becoming more and more like a fully working
theatre space every day. I am excited to report that a lighting rig

bar too...oh, yes and our very own retractable seating that will

lighting box that you can see in the photo to the left of all these
super happy theatre-goers!
Intimate venues like Keirunga are like gold dust in Hawke's Bay,
especially ones with a vision for encouraging experimentation and
incubation of new works, as well as supporting local and touring
artists with affordable hirage fees and options for shared
Let's see if together we can help create a venue that pushes all
the right buttons to inspire and support theatre, music, stand-up
comedy, dance, live art...however your creative bag floweth
So what can you do from here? Make a wee donation - whatever you
can afford, then tell your mates about it too.
Philanthropic, arts loving friends: let's do this!
