Live Performance & Art On Screen

Our Live Performance on Screen program brings the worlds best live performances including from London’s West End and New York to audiences in Bathurst. These productions are captured using high resolution multiple-camera angles during a live performance and edited to give audiences an experience as close to being in the theatre as possible. Forget the cost of flights and accommodation, for a very reasonable price we offer a rolling program of drama, comedy, musical theatre, opera and dance.

We also offer Art on Screen in collaboration with Bathurst Regional Art Gallery (BRAG). These documentaries are designed for the big screen and take the viewer behind the art revealing the stories of artists, art movements and cultures.

This program is updated regularly. Subscribe to our enews to avoid missing out.
