The petition of certain citizens of the State of Victoria draws to the attention of the Legislative Council the strong local community support calling on the Government to fund restoration works at the JB Osborne Theatre in Kangaroo Flat.


The 400-seat theatre is a community asset that has fallen into disrepair. Government funding is required to ensure full restoration takes place, including the construction of multi-purpose change rooms which can be used by both theatre artists and young female and male sporting teams as well as for education purposes. A school sporting oval is adjacent to the theatre.


Once restored, the theatre could also be used for a range of other activities that would benefit the wider Bendigo community, such as events for multicultural and youth groups, and the aged. 

The petitioners therefore request that the Legislative Council call on the Government to provide funding to assist Crusoe College in restoring and refurbishing the JB Osborne Theatre for education and community purposes.
