This is a good theatre as it is quite intimate. When a quality production is here you really feel a part of the performance that is lacking in larger venues. That said it is a bit sterile in atmosphere. When all the building around is completed it will be more scenic at the river fireshore

Went with family and friends as a treat for my birthday. Saw Cirque Eloize. This was a great show for all ages and pleasantly surprising. Facilities are good and staff are very organised and friendly. While we waited for the show we watched the aerialized traing going on for the very young kids. The theatre has parking validation when using... More

We have been to this Theatre many times and it is always a delight. Every seat has great views and in the smaller theatres the audience is quite close to the performance. It doesn't feel cramped and is rather comfortable too. There are lots of bathrooms and a couple of bars. Parking is either out the front if you're lucky... More

We went today to see Giggle and Hoot. Great venue. Not too big, we had great seats in the 3rd row but I think sitting anywhere would have still been good.

loved the show and meeting some of the cast, would have been nice if there were keepsake to buy. If you can get a package deal it is worth it.

I got tickets to watch Wicked the musical at riverside- it was my first time seeing a show there so didn't know what to expect. The production was amazing! The stage (and theatre generally) is definitely smaller compared to the Capitol theatre etc but that meant great views from anywhere (and we were sitting in the stalls, third last row).... More

We go there often. Always have wonderful actors in wonderful plays. The theatres all have comfortable seating and all have good acoustics. It is a wonderful facility for the Parramatta area. Many restaurants nearby for pre-theatre meals and some offer free parking as well.
