Playhouse rigging budget increase

Council approved increasing the budget for the replacement of the rigging at the Prince George Playhouse from $271,500 to $356,000.

In a report to council it was explained that the budget of $271,500 was developed in 2021 to replace the rigging systems as well as upgrade safe access to these systems. Escalating costs and availability of materials has impacted the budget, in addition to the limitations of accessing qualified workers skilled in the theatrical rigging industry typically located in larger cities.

The completion of this project will provide a functioning theatrical rigging system with operational safety systems in place that will serve the needs of the facility.
