FAQs about Cheap Theatres in Melbourne

What are the best neighbourhoods in Melbourne for hiring cheap theatres?

Here are some areas where you can find affordable theatre hire in the city:

  • Community Centres & Halls: Suburbs such as Thornbury, Brunswick, or Coburg boast community centres or halls with intimate performance spaces. While these venues may offer basic amenities, they're often very reasonably priced and suitable for smaller productions or rehearsals.
  • University Theatres: Institutions like Melbourne University or RMIT sometimes make their performance spaces available for hire to external groups at student-friendly rates.
  • Independent Theatre Companies: Explore areas like Fitzroy or Collingwood for independent theatre companies that may offer their own performance spaces for hire at more affordable rates compared to established theatres.
  • Smaller Venues with Flexible Rates: Consider smaller theatre venues, especially those located outside the CBD, which may be open to negotiating rates based on your production's needs and the timing of your rental.

How far in advance should I book cheap theatres in Melbourne?

We recommend making your booking for most performance venues at least 2-3 months in advance. While these venues offer cost-effective options, booking well in advance is advisable for prime slots like weekends or evenings when demand is high. It is better to avoid any last minute bookings, although there is a slim chance of securing a last-minute cancellation deal, it's not a dependable strategy.
