Map showing Bluestone Theatre

Kyneton Theatre Company’s home is the historic Bluestone Theatre Located in Hutton Street, Kyneton. The building, circa 1859 was once a church donated to the local arts community by the Congregational Church and Sunday School of Kyneton.

Its architectural style is of the Victorian Period (1851-1901) Gothic Revival and latter additions of Federation/Edwardian Period(1902-c.1918). It has since been heritage listed by the Victorian Heritage Society as it is a building of historical significance. It houses a fully restored George Fincham organ, still in its original position (installed in 1880). The front fence and gate is a fine example of Victorian Era Cast Iron Metalwork, constructed by Joseph Laughton’s Vulcan Foundry formerly of Melbourne.

It is a unique performance space that provides incredible acoustics and a flexible and relaxed atmosphere. Like all good theatre’s it also has its’ own ghost ‘Esther’, who seems to only make an appearance late at night, after a performance has finished or when one is in the theatre alone.
