Venue for hire - Theatre shows - Invercargill


The SIT Centrestage Theatre is located on the first floor of the CUE On Don building, 33 Don Street, in the heart of the inner city of Invercargill, surrounded by lovely cafes and retail shops.

The Theatre was originally known as the State Insurance Theatre and officially opened in 1978.

Since then the theatre has been sold twice and gone through some structural changes before being gifted by the Invercargill Theatre Trust to the Southern Institute of Technology in 2008.

The theatre is available for private hire with a 309 seating capacity. There is also a large foyer suitable for 100 people for pre-show drinks or cocktails, a bar and ticketing office, two levels of dressing rooms and a green room. With unobstructed views it has become the hired venue of choice for a wide range of clients.

It hosts a varied programme from the Southern Institute of Technology students, including the drama, music and film. We frequently host local school productions, ballet and dance performances, as well as many other events from stage productions to corporate lectures.
