A new era for the Alex

A new era for the Alex

September 2018


The revamped Alexander Theatre collectively forms part of The Ian Potter Centre for Performing Arts – a $50 million development – along with a new 130-seat Sound Gallery and a 200-seat Jazz Club, both opening in May 2019.

With seating for 561 people, a flexible performance space and groundbreaking acoustic system, the new Alexander Theatre extends the original architectural vision of the building first designed in 1967, bringing it into the 21st century.

The theatre is not only expected to host world-class productions, but foster the kind of research and development that is rarely possible in the performing arts in Australia.
