Due to the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) throughout Australia and the resulting restrictions imposed by the Federal and State governments, Lyric Theatre has been temporarily closed until further notice. We will keep you up to date any developments and please stay safe.
The Lyric Theatre is an iconic landmark in Sydney’s musical scene, and for a good reason. The theatre, which is part of The Star Casino Complex, is popular for hosting some of the city’s most amazing musicals and performances. It is also referred to as the “Sydney Lyric”.
The theatre boasts a star-studded list of past performances with famous names such as Elton John, Michael Crawford, Natalie Cole and Michael Ball.
Lyric Theatre Sydney, Parking, Seating Plan, Map, Shows & Box Office
Make sure you arrive at least half an hour before the show – or even earlier if you’d love a refreshment. The theatre has licensed bars where you can catch a drink and mingle with others before the show starts.
Tickets can be collected at the box office that is close to the Stalls foyer. The box office remains open two hours before the performance, providing a window period for visitors to pick their tickets.
It is essential to add that while most theatrical performances are suitable for all ages, parents are required to do their due diligence, and parental discretion is advised. Additionally, only children under two can be seated on a parent’s/guardian’s lap during the show. Lyric Theatre welcomes visitors with physical impairments and special needs, thanks to its accessibility across the facility.
To get to the theatre, take bus route 389 and get off at the Maritime Museum stop, which is just a few minutes away from the theatre. Alternatively, get on board the Light Rail and stop at The Star, or ferry services to Pyrmont Bay are also available.
For car users, parking is available at Harbourside Car Park, just a five-minute walk. Disabled parking bays are available close to the entrance.
