Thebbie is probably the most loved medium size venue in Australia, particularly by contemporary music bands. With a capacity of 2000, it is used by young bands breaking into the concert circuit, established bands which like the intimacy of the venue rather than the cavernous stadium type venues, and by alternative bands which want to be right in the raw energy which exudes from a pumping dance crowd.
The list of performers who have played Thebbie is most impressive. Thebbie is also a favourite venue for children’s shows such as Bananas in Pyjamas and Hi 5, as well as concerts by visiting Italian, Greek and Vietnamese performers. The venue can be transformed into a myriad of layouts from the intimate 700 seat lyric mode to ‘in the round’ performances and sporting events such as Wrestling and Kick boxing and Lounge/Balcony section only events such as The Dance Theatre of Pina Bausch.
The theatre is licensed, has kitchen facilities and a number of break-out areas for conferences and seminars. The old Council Chambers and Lounge in the adjacent and connected ex Thebarton Council offices, are also available for independent hire for corporate entertainment or break-out areas.
