Max Kay farewells Perth Theatre Trust Board

Twelve years of valued service

Changes to the Perth Theatre Trust Board have seen Mr Max Kay step down as a Trustee after twelve years of dedicated and valuable service.
 
Max served on the Board, initially as a City of Perth Council representative, and then for three consecutive terms as a ministerial appointment.

As an entrepreneur, a performer and a Councillor, Max provided the Board with professional insight and was a great support to both the staff and Trustees.

Max started his career as lead vocalist in a rock and roll band; arriving in Perth from Scotland in 1967. He soon became one of Western Australia’s most sought after performers, supporting and performing with many top names in the entertainment industry.

In 1976, Max opened the Civic Theatre Restaurant where he wrote, produced and performed in his own shows. The Civic Theatre was a successful Perth icon, for 25 years, playing to over 1.5 million people.

He was awarded Citizen of the Year for the Arts Culture and Entertainment category in 2001 and in 2003 he was awarded an Order of Australia (AM) for his work in many charities and community projects. 
 
In 2017 Max and the Perth Theatre Trust Chair, Morgan Solomon, both raised money for the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia by abseiling 220m from the top of the Central Park building - and yes, he was wearing his kilt.

Max has a long standing commitment to the WA community and continues to sit on a number of Boards and committees. He is still performing and is currently touring WA with his one man show – One More Time – An Evening with Max Kay.
