Storytelling in all forms - dance, theatre, music or spoken word - comes alive in the intimate surrounds of the Playhouse. As well as dramatic performances, the Playhouse provides an excellent setting for film screenings, presentation events and conferences. 

The Playhouse is ideal for single-set productions, and often hosts shows for Bell Shakespeare, the Sydney Festival and Sydney Opera House Presents. The venue's flexibility allows the most ambitious performances to be realised. The fit out includes motorised battens for light rigs and scenery changes.
