The Regent Theatre re-opens in 2020

One of Melbourne’s most iconic landmarks, the Regent Theatre, will re-open its doors to the public in January 2020, revealing a major refurbishment of the much-loved auditorium, foyers and amenities.

Working in collaboration with Heritage Victoria, and closely with a renowned team of architects, theatre designers, specialist builders, expert trades and craftspeople – and the knowledge and experience of the theatre operators Marriner Group –– this $19.4 million refurbishment has been three years in the planning and eight months in construction.

The Regent will reopen with the international theatrical event War Horse, followed by the inspiring Billy Elliot the Musical. These productions follow in the footsteps of some the world’s most prestigious theatrical events to be hosted at the Regent, including Sunset Boulevard, Wicked, Love Never Dies, Singin’ In The Rain and The Lion King to name a few.
