The Sir Robert Helpmann Theatre was named after Mount Gambier's most famous performing artist, Sir Robert Helpman (1909-1986). The Australian dancer, actor, director and choreographer added the extra 'n' when he began dancing to avoid there being 13 letters in his name, because it was considered bad luck.
The theatre's raked auditorium and overhanging balcony gives patrons an intimate experience during live performances.
