Theatre Venue | Riverside Theatre, Riverside Theatre Parramatta

Venue Information

Pets Allowed: 
Child Friendly: 

This is a traditional proscenium arch, 761 seat theatre venue with stalls, circle and gallery levels. The architectural design is based on the common European Opera House concept to provide a very warm, intimate and live performance space. It is regarded as an A Reserve house, which means that sight-lines are good in most seats and a standard ticket price can apply to the whole house at the Hirers discretion.

The large stage area has a fly tower facility and the venue boasts full staging, lighting and sound capabilities of a standard comparable to many larger commercial venues. It has an orchestra pit which can also provide an apron thrust stage when the pit is not required.
