Townsville is desperately short of Theatre venues

The Civic Theatre is heavily booked, often by productions that don’t need a 1000 seat theatre but there is no medium sized venue. Riverway seats 300 but is a multiuse space not a theatre. There is no modern small theatre and no venue at all that has suitable acoustics for music or voice.

The only practical and cost effective solution is to build on the asset we have – the Townsville Civic Theatre and its recent extension – By creating the medium sized theatre in a concert hall format we can also provide the right acoustics for music and voice and have a large stage for dance.

With shared facilities, equipment and staff the TPAC would be cheaper to build and much cheaper to operate and would serve Townsville’s performing arts needs for decades to come.


The main features of the TPAC design are:

An 800 seat Concert Hall
A 200 seat Drama Theatre
A 2000 Seat Outdoor Amphitheatre
The existing 950 seat Civic Theatre
A large (seperable) foyer with stage area
