Theatre and live performance returns to the Civic Theatre in 2022

Civic Theatre Newcastle proudly presents Season 2022, Reignite

Adversity often spurs creativity and, without question, 2022 will be a year for reigniting our city’s cultural spark. As we let go of the year that was and look forward with optimism, the Civic Theatre invites you to rediscover the excitement and emotion of live performance - from theatre, comedy, musicals & circus to kids shows, there is something for everyone at the Civic Theatre. 

Season 2022 includes a diverse mix of genres and new offerings including both local and national touring productions. Local Novocastrian productions include Creativity, an original new work from perennial favourites, Stray Dogs Theatre Co.; Grappling from the Edge by Catapult Dance; and Airness from Knock & Run Theatre. This Season will also see the return of the Sydney and Melbourne Comedy Festivals so get ready for some laughs.

Bring the kids along to Erth's Prehistoric World or Wolfgang's Magical Musical Circus. Get your musical fix with The Sapphires by HIT Productions. Enjoy mainstage theatrical productions Jane Eyre by shake&stir theatre co. and Black Cockatoo by Ensemble Theatre.
