The best shows in the best theatre in the heart of Sydney!

The staff of Riverside Theatres are passionate about bringing the very best the performing arts can offer to audiences in all pockets of the greater Sydney area. Parramatta is the geographic and demographic heart of Sydney and is easily accessed by road, train and ferry.

Located on the banks of the Parramatta River, Riverside Theatres is nestled in the midst of the Church Street Restaurant precinct. Pre-show dining and parking is ample, accessible and affordable.

A Bicentennial Project, Riverside Theatres opened in 1988 offering three venues under the one roof. The Rafferty's Theatre, the most intimate space seats around 100 people and suits small corporate events, seminars, stand up comedy acts, small scale productions, or even an exhibition. The Lennox Theatre is a flexible space seating approximately 220 people. The largest theatre, the Riverside Theatre, can house up to 761 patrons with comfortable, plush seating in a conventional proscenium arch stage with orchestra pit and fly tower. Larger scale productions including international acts are often seen on the Riverside stage including Shakespeare, comedy, drama, ballet, contemporary dance and musicals.
