Ngau Chi Wan Civic Centre promotes arts through theatre partnership


Ngau Chi Wan Civic Centre will co-operate with the Wanchai Theatre under the new Programme Partnership Scheme of the Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD).

A spokesman for the department said the scheme was a pilot project launched at North District Town Hall and Yuen Long Theatre last year. The scheme would now extend to Ngau Chi Wan Civic Centre and Sheung Wan Civic Centre in 2003-2004.

Through developing a long-term working relationship between the artists and the civic centre, the scheme aims to establish and develop the artistic image of the centre; it aims to promote the arts in the community, and to maximise the use of venue facilities and resources.

"We believe the programme partner will help develop the image of the civic centre, promoting the arts among local audiences more effectively in the long run", the spokesman said.

Wanchai Theatre, the Ngau Chi Wan Civic Centre Programme Partner will launch a series of programmes from April 2003 onwards for one year. These programmes are both entertaining, and educational; they include drama, dance and workshops.

The scheme will kick off with a Cantonese drama presented at the venue, from April 25. Tickets, priced at $90 and $120, are now available from URBTIX outlets.

Programme booklets on coming events under the Ngau Chi Wan Programme Partnership Scheme will be available at all LCSD Civic Centres in mid-April.

Wanchai Theatre, formerly known as the Youth Theatre, was set up in 1983. Most of its members are from the Wanchai Youth Drama Group and the drama course of the School of Continuing Education of Hong Kong Baptist University.
