Riverside Theatres

Riverside Theatres is a premier centre for Sydney’s vibrant theatrical scene. It comprises three distinct venues and is a popular performing arts centre in the area. Hosting many events annually, this hub is a must-visit in Western Sydney.

The theatre’s location on the banks of the majestic Parramatta River adds to its appeal.

The theatre has hosted the Sydney Festival for many decades, with the complex first opening back in 1988.

As mentioned, the complex consists of three different venues: the Lennox Theatre, the Riverside Theatre, and Rafferty’s Theatre. Rafferty’s Theatre is the smallest of these spaces and can accommodate up to 100 people. When the theatre is not hosting exhibitions, comedy stand-up acts, or seminars, it may be hired for small corporate functions.

The Lennox Theatre is larger than Rafferty’s and hosts about 200 people. It may be used when a larger capacity is required, and best of all, its seating configurations may be changed to suit either cabaret or theatre seating style.

The Riverside Theatre is the largest of the three theatres, perhaps the most popular within the complex. With a capacity of 761, the theatre boasts a traditional proscenium arch complete with stalls, a circle, and gallery spaces. Its design was inspired by that of the European Opera House to provide great ambience and an intimate setting for live performances.

With plush seating, patrons enjoy performances in one of Sydney’s best locations. For large-scale productions, Riverside Theatre ensures acts are seen on the Riverside Stage. In previous years, hundreds of acts ranging from comedy to ballet, dance, and drama have been seen on the stage.

Riverside Theatre is at the Corner of Market and Church Streets, just half an hour’s drive from Sydney’s CBD.
