Earthquake Theatre New Zealand

Christchurch theatres have been dealt a tough blow by the earthquake with another set to meet the wrecker’s ball.IMG_9059.jpgThe large four-storey brick mill in Wise St, Addington, was built at the turn of the 20th century but yesterday its fate was decided with a red sticker.IMG_9048.jpgThe Mill Theatre, home to amateur group The Riccarton Players, escaped relatively unscathed in September’s 2011 quake but met its match this time round.IMG_9057.jpgSecretary and founding member Doug Clarke, QSM, said the damage to the building was extensive.IMG_9065.jpg“We’ve got issues with the roof and lots of bricks have come down through the building. “There wasn’t too much damage after the big one, it’s been worsened by all the bloody aftershocks.” Clarke said members of the Riccarton Players’ committee would retrieve important items from the theatre before it was demolished. He stressed it was only the building that had been condemned.IMG_9044.jpg
