The Countdown to Opening is on!
With the new year underway and just 11 months until our official opening, we thought we should kick off the sprint to the finish by sharing an update of the development of Sydney’s next great theatre, Western Sydney Performing Arts Centre. Our first year of construction was filled with many exciting moments, from the raising of the fly tower structure through to the reveal of the balcony level seating framework and the beautiful curvature of the building’s exterior facade taking shape. Our construction partner, Hansen Yuncken have done an amazing job of keeping us on track for our end of year grand opening.
The year ahead will be even more exciting as we begin the interior technical installation and fit out of the theatre, including the spectacular retractable seating system, 7 beautiful bars and VIP space and striking Chandelier that will be the centrepiece in the Ground Level Foyer.
Even more exciting however, is the development of the content and commercial program. We’ll be making some exciting announcements in the next few months about some of the productions, artists and organisations that will perform at the Western Sydney Performing Arts Centre in 2020.
It us a real privilege to be delivering such an important and necessary piece of cultural infrastructure for NSW and the Western Sydney Region. With its turbocharged development and massive population, Western Sydney represents an extraordinary opportunity for the growth of new audiences in arts and live entertainment in Australia. Our team can’t wait to deliver what we know will be an exceptional venue and to welcome new audiences from across NSW and beyond to experience Sydney’s next great theatre.
