The Theatre


An unforgettable experience

Foundry Theatre is a multi-purpose, flexible performance and event space suitable for a wide range of live entertainment and events.

After entering through the Sydney Lyric foyers, the Foundry Theatre envelopes you through a series of ambient passageways that builds anticipation for the experience that awaits. Arriving in a vestibule with soaring ceilings, you then arrive into the Foundry Theatre itself. The minimalist interior design with highlights of dynamic lighting immerse performers and audience alike.

Theatre-goers will have access to the facilities of the Sydney Lyric, including box office, bars, cloak room and bathrooms and will experience Foundation Theatre’s signature premium service throughout. Our ticketing partner is Ticketmaster.
