A tribute to Heath Ledger.....
Heath Ledger) the idea and design plans for the State Theatre Centre of WA (State Theatre Centre) were taking shape. Construction began in 2007, and it was completed and officially opened on the 27th of January this year. Described as a 'contemporary and city based theatre for the people of WA' it is made up of the 575 seat Heath Ledger Theatre, Studio Underground a flexible performance space seating 200 + , The Courtyard a multipurpose outdoor events space, and rehearsal rooms. Heath Ledger best known for his roles in BrokeBack Mountain and as The Joker in The Dark Knight was probably Perth's most well known international actor. A few weeks ago I went and had lunch with my very talented and artistic niece Jessica who works in this amazing new theatre, unfortunately rehearsals were in full swing and actors can be 'temperamental' so entry into the actual theatre was not allowed. I had to content myself this time with the outside wall and the spectacular staircase leading up to the theatre, but I will return.....!!
