The Civic Theatre Newcastle is one of Australia's great historic theatres with a richly baroque interior sure to delight and inspire. The exterior of the building references the Georgian revival style with elegant repetitive arched windows.

The Heritage-Listed theatre was designed by theatre architect Henry Eli White who was responsible for the design of Newcastle City Hall and the State Theatre in Sydney. In a spectacular celebratory ceremony it was opened by the Premier of New South Wales in 1929. It is one of few surviving late-1920s atmospheric theatres in the country.

This is Newcastle's premier venue for live stage productions, presenting a year round calendar of events, including live music, comedy, dance, live theatre and educational events.

The Civic Theatre Box Office phone lines are open weekdays 9am to 5pm. The Ticket Office counter within the Civic Theatre is open weekdays from 9am to 3pm & 1 hour prior to a show.
