Griffith Regional Theatre is located at the top of the main street of Griffith in Neville Place adjacent to the Council Chambers. The building was officially opened on 14 March 1987.
Our theatre is one of New South Wales’ premier performing arts venues. We provide world class performing arts and entertainment to the people of Griffith and surrounding regions. Our theatre is a state-of-the-art facility, with a seating capacity of 523 and we boast outstanding staging, lighting and sound facilities.
We offer a Season program each year to satisfy every artistic taste: drama, dance, music, comedy, cabaret, plus a young people's program.
The Theatre is available for hire and is used by touring and local performers, schools, dance schools, amateur theatre groups and musicians, as well as conference organisers and private businesses.
Griffith Regional Theatre is very conscious of our role within the broader community. The Theatre is a meeting place for our community whether they are coming together for art and culture, for meetings and conferences, or for private gatherings.
We actively invite works to the Theatre to enrich the cultural life of the community and work with many touring companies to ensure there is a wide range of programs that appeal to the broad range of our community members.
We provide opportunities for the Community to participate in the performing arts through the staging of Community Musicals, provision of drama classes and access to the Theatre for performances by schools, dance schools, musical clubs and amateur theatre groups.
We believe our community should be able to enjoy works of quality in a regional area, just as those in the city can access. We actively work with producers and touring companies to ensure a diverse and accessible program is available to the Griffith community and region. We bring a range of shows including drama, music, dance, opera, circus and programs for children.
We also work with commercial hirers and performers’ agents to ensure that exciting performers and shows comes to Griffith. We believe that if it were not for these efforts the cultural life of Griffith and area would be dramatically reduced.
Griffith Regional Theatre hosts Daytime Melodies three to four times a year. These musical shows are specifically designed for the “more senior” patrons in our community and include morning tea before the show!
Through our groups booking service we aim to assist teachers as much as possible with the organising of their school visit in order to expose students to valuable performing arts experiences. And of course the scheduling of school holiday entertainment extends these learning opportunities outside of school into an environment that parents and children can learn and be entertained together.
