Bold in the cold - Clarence St Theatre

(Theatre name changed 2009, originally Westpac Community Theatre)

Near freezing temperatures were no barrier to the repaint of the Clarence St Theatre in Clarence Street, Hamilton with Resene Wintergrade Lumbersider used on the coldest of days in light colours to keep the work humming along.

Clarence St Theatre

All exterior blockwork was coated in Resene Flexicover E elastomeric membrane tinted to Resene Sea Fog to enable the coating to flex with the building and cover hairline cracks. A roof in Resene Hi-Glo tinted to Resene Vulcan completed the exterior sombre finish. In keeping with the theatre style, this is where the fun part started. Blocks of colour were positioned around the building to add a touch of fun, intrigue, drama and surprise in keeping with the entertainment within. Hues of Resene Buttercup (bright yellow), Resene Decadence (deep purple blue), Resene Camarone (bright green) and Resene Monza (bright red) are striking against the neutral background, boldly reminding the theatregoers that this is anything but a normal night out.

Fun and full of personality inside and out, this community theatre is drenched in creative drama right down to the blocks.
