Help us paint the theatre! August 6 and 7 with BBQ

We need you to pick up a paintbrush for the Crown Wharf Theatre on Saturday 6 and Sunday 7 August to help give our auditorium and back-of-house areas their first lick of paint.

We’re getting the painting done before the installation of our seating bank, scheduled for the end of August, as the auditorium and the whole theatre gets ever closer to opening its doors. See the latest photos inside the theatre

But we can’t do the painting alone (it’s a BIG space) – so you’re cordially invited to the CWT Paint Party Weekend! Time: 10am – 4pm (Saturday 6 & Sunday 7 August)

Join us for an hour, an afternoon or the entire day or days. Whatever you’re able to do will make a difference.

Please bring along your own painting equipment (paintbrush, roller,  tray etc) and remember that the theatre is still very much a building site: facilities are limited, so come prepared. There is currently no easy access to running water, so used equipment will need to be bagged and washed up at home.

Our thank you BBQ!

As a thank you to everyone who gets involved, we’ll be running a BBQ on the Sunday at 1pm on site for all those that have pitched in over the weekend. The menu will be burgers and veggie burgers, but feel free to bring something else along if you have any further dietary requirements.

RSVP: It would be great if you could let us know if you hope to join us on Saturday AM, Saturday PM, Sunday AM and/or Sunday PM, so we have an idea of numbers. Please RSVP to our volunteers coordinator Dawn –
