The Southport School (TSS) named the theatre Annand Theatre, after Rhodes Scholar and alumnus Peter Annand.

It represents a significant investment in the arts by TSS, with the theatre exceeding the seating capacity of the Gold Coast’s own Home of the Arts (HOTA) theatre.

“The sheer capacity of the structure itself is a massive construction feat.”

Jared Van Heerden, Condev Project Manager

Commencing construction in July 2019, the project was designed to seamlessly integrate with the existing architectural style of the prestigious school which is celebrating its 120th anniversary.

“We used thousands of face bricks as a façade system to match the existing infrastructure of the school.”

“The theatre recently showcased its first full-scale production with St Hilda’s production of Matilda.”

The Southport School spared no expense, enlisting a company that has created a facility now nominated for the 2021 Master Builders Housing & Construction Awards for its outstanding building innovation.
