Corner of City Rd and Cleveland St, Chippendale, Sydney
Welcome to the Seymour Centre.
Located in the heart of the University of Sydney, the Seymour champions cultural exploration, arts education and audience engagement.
Each year over 250,000 people engage with the Centre as audience, theatre creators, directors, designers, technicians and performers – and the numbers are growing.
We present a diverse range of the best of contemporary performing arts including participation in some of this city’s major arts festivals; the Sydney Comedy Festival, Sydney Children’s Festival, Sydney Fringe Festival and the iconic Sydney Festival.
The Seymour is also a dynamic hub for diverse arts activity: we are home to four innovative performance companies who all present work in the Centre: SIMA Jazz performs the best of contemporary jazz regularly in our Sound Lounge; Shaun Parker and Co presents major dance and physical theatre works; Chronology Arts commission and perform contemporary classical music and Monkey Baa Theatre for Young People adapt well-known novels for young people into memorable theatrical experiences.
As part of the University of Sydney we host a vibrant program of University events and student performances, ranging from lectures by leading world thinkers as part of the Sydney Ideas program to presenting the annual student revue season.
We present outstanding theatre experiences for families and young people with performances scheduled during each holiday period. Our arts education program presents stimulating main stage performance, practical workshops and discussions for students from K–12 to engage with throughout each year.
The Seymour is also committed to partnering with small and emerging companies to develop and present innovative independent performance. This year we present a program in our Reginald Theatre (formerly the Downstairs Theatre) of curated works by some of Australia’s best small and emerging performance companies.
The Seymour Centre is a centre in the true sense of the word – a place for many to come together and have a great time. On any given night you might experience a major concert for 800 in our York Theatre, a dramatic play, a solo comedian and the most innovative music in our intimate Sound Lounge.
We look forward to welcoming you to the Seymour.
