Construction ramps up on Her Majesty's makeover

Her historic Grote Street frontage remains, but behind the iconic facade Her Majesty's Theatre is almost unrecognisable as redevelopment of the venue continues.

Today Premier Steven Marshall and local media toured the site to view the renovations under way, which have already seen the seats removed from the auditorium, the chandelier dismantled and part of the northern wall behind the stage removed.

The $66 million redevelopment will see "Her Maj" significantly expanded with a 1,472 seat auditorium over three levels with high specification acoustics, a new western wing with a dramatic glass facade, spacious new foyers, bars and backstage facilities, and a greater capacity to stage large touring shows.

Her Majesty's Theatre is due to reopen in early 2020.
