Civic Theatre looking forward to 90th birthday
Our city's iconic Civic Theatre will celebrate its 90th birthday year with a season of live performances designed to spark the imagination.
Season 2019 was unveiled last week to an enthusiastic audience, with a thrilling mixture of dance, drama, comedy, physical theatre, puppetry and storytelling.
Old favourites such as Bell Shakespeare and the Sydney and Melbourne Comedy Festivals are back, plus exciting new works from local and major Australian performing arts companies.
There are also new benefits for subscribers, including free parking at Civic West car park and discounts.
Newcastle is truly fortunate to be home to such a magnificent historic theatre offering a diverse and compelling program of high quality productions.
Civic Theatre welcomes more than 130,000 people every year to shows from all over Australia, and world-wide. From its early days as a cinema to the hub of live performance it is today – this beautiful theatre has entertained and inspired generations of Novocastrians and visitors.
The tradition continues in Season 2019 with some of the great names in Australian culture, including Katie Noonan and Michael Leunig in Gratitude and Grief, and Jonathan Biggins bringing Paul Keating to life in his one-man show The Gospel According to Paul.
Add children's shows, original local productions, dance and Shakespearean drama and you have a season fitting for our 90-year-old dame.
This year the Civic is offering Season subscribers free parking in the Civic West Parking Station, meaning subscribers can easily park just a short walk from the theatre.
Subscribers also receive discounted tickets when they buy four or more shows, plus discounted drinks, flexible payment options and bonus subscriber events.
With 14 outstanding productions, there are lots of great reasons to subscribe in 2019.
