The Oakhurst Insurance George Arts Theatre gets its phase 2 restoration
Theatre-goers of the Eden District will have to wait just a few short weeks as the Oakhurst Insurance George Arts Theatre gets its second set of touch-ups. This historic venue, which first opened its doors to the public in 1969, will be getting its phase 2-restoration which includes the installation of a new stage curtain, the fitting of new carpets, new upholstery on the seats and repairs to the walls and ceilings. There is also good news for performers as the change rooms will receive a much-needed world class make-over. The Green Room will also be refurbished. “The George Society of Arts has been looking forward to this renovation of our theatre for a long time. To finally experience the rejuvenation of this ‘Grande Dame’, is absolute fabulous!” – Willem van Zyl Chairman of George Society of Arts.
“By its inherent nature, the performing arts uplifts and creates opportunities for communities across our rainbow nation. The Oakhurst Insurance George Arts Theatre strives to ensure that audiences from all social spheres are afforded the opportunity to engage in live theatre. Through this phase 2 revamp, Oakhurst Insurance looks forward to ensuring that the legacy of one of South Africa’s long-standing community theatres continues to grow.” – Peter Grindlay – MD of Oakhurst Insurance Company Limited.
