Historic balconies at His Majesty’s Theatre to be restored

Visitors to His Majesty's Theatre will soon be able to walk along the balconies and verandahs as part of further upgrades at the historic performing arts venue.

The works, which commenced yesterday, are expected to create 110 jobs. Construction company Built has been announced as the successful tenderer for the works, which will see the balconies restored based on their original design.

Built undertook upgrade works to the Theatre's orchestra pit in 2019 and has extensive heritage refurbishment experience including delivering the award-winning redevelopment of the Old Treasury Buildings in Perth.

As the Theatre's balconies were removed in 1953, the State Government is seeking historical information and materials from the public that could inform the build.

This may include photographs or original balcony components such as columns, light fittings, balustrades, or other physical materials.
