The magnificent Civic Theatre is the heart and soul of live performance in Newcastle, NSW Australia. It is a proscenium arch theatre seating 1474 in two tiers (stalls 859, dress circle 615) combining the grandeur and atmosphere of the stately historic theatres, with the comfort, technology and professional capability of today. The Civic Theatre also contains spaces for smaller more intimate functions or VIP events including the Civic Bar and Promenade Room and Balcony.
An inspiring celebration of the journey of one boy who hangs up his boxing gloves for ballet shoes.
