The Drama Theatre is the more intimate of our two proscenium arch theatres, and seats up to 544 guests. True to its name, the Drama Theatre is the venue where you’ll find the venerated Bell Shakespeare, Sydney Theatre Co and Bangarra Dance Theatre.
Twice a year, it fills with lively debate and discussion for the All About Women festival and The Festival of Dangerous Ideas. Iconic artists like Toni Collette, Sylvie Guillem, Mel Gibson, Hugo Weaving, Geoffrey Rush, John Cleese and Sir Ian McKellen have all ‘tread the boards’ in this room.
“Theatre remains any society’s sharpest way to hold a live debate with itself.”
