BLOCKBUSTER HQ OPEN FOR BUSINESS

MARKING 12-months to  opening, the Western Sydney Performing Arts Centre (WSPAC) has announced it is open for business to industry.

The worls-class venue is accepting expressions of  interests from  Australian and international arts companies, theatre  producers and concert promoters.

The highly anticipated theatre will be a new cultural landmark for Western Sydney audiences and a vital new venue for the entertainment industry, which is recognising the opportunities in Western Sydney.

With more than  $100M investment backing the construction and technical features, the WSPAC has been designed to sit proudly amongst the best lyric theatres and concert halls in the world, and is destined to change the entertainment landscape of Australia.

 
The 2000-seat proscenium arch theatre will be able to house large-scale musicals, ballet and opera companies and symphony orchestras. Comprising a full fly system, retractable seating and outstanding sight-lines, the theatre is unparalleled outside of Sydney’s CBD.
 
Stuart Ayres, Minister for Western Sydney, said: “All eyes are on Western Sydney where we are redefining the cultural experience, building cultural infrastructure which will be the envy of the world.
 
"The new Western Sydney Performing Arts Centre will showcase some of the finest home grown and international concerts, ballets, musicals and live events, and become a destination in its own right."
 
WSPAC’s unique design means the venue is positioned to become a drawcard for blockbuster shows, headline  acts,  plays  and  touring productions. 
 
The venue features an orchestra pit suitable for a 30-piece orchestra, 80-line fly system, main bar, grand staircase and courtyard event and function space. The centre’s grand walkway and entrance can be illuminated in different colours and feature red carpet and media wall.
 
Designed  by Cox Architecture and  constructed by lead  contractor, Hansen  Yuncken, the building has been created with a flowing, curved exterior curtain façade and with grand, light- filled interior foyers finished in elegant natural finishes. 
 
The main theatre auditorium is equally unique in both its fit-out and functionality, with a warm and inviting interior with variable capacity modes ranging from 900 to 2000 when seated, increasing to 2300 capacity in concert (standing)mode. 
 
The auditorium also features a unique retractable stalls seating system which enables the auditorium to easily transform from theatre mode into concert/cabaret/conference mode in less than a few hours.
 
The WSPAC is expcted to open its doors within the next 12 months.
