The Joan has something for everyone

Smiling woman surrounded by glitter

World class performances in theatre, music, dance and more… check out what’s in store at the Joan Sutherland Performing Arts Centre in 2018.

The Joan has a sensational line up of performances in 2018 to excite and delight all ages.

Here’s our 5 favourites:

  • The 78 Storey Treehouse - That’s right, Andy and Terry have continued to renovate the Treehouse, with yet another 13 levels! It’s now got a Scribbletorium, a high-security potato chip storage facility (guarded by one very angry duck!) and even an open-air movie theatre. Bring all the family to see the fun based on the popular children’s books.

  • PSO 30th Anniversary Gala Concert – Penrith Symphony Orchestra brings concertgoers an exciting program of much loved classics, premiere performances and star soloists.

  • Melbourne International Comedy Festival Roadshow - Australia's largest comedy festival will feature fantastic funny-makers from Australia and beyond performing stand-up, sketch, satire, silliness and song. Definitely not one to miss!

  • Eight Grands – a thrilling concert offering the orchestral spectacle of eight (YES 8!) grand pianos together on stage. It’s limited to one show only, so don’t leave it too late to secure your seats.

  • Anh Do – The Happiest Refugee Live - Anh Do's stage show takes his bestselling book a step further, combining stand-up comedy with real life stories, photos and filmed pieces to retell his amazing story.

So now we’ve tempted you, the best way to see multiple shows throughout the year is to sign up for a subscription, offering a saving of up to $30 off a single ticket.

The High Street Season subscription is an all-rounder, offering tickets to a rich blend of theatre, dance, comedy and music. The Fine Music Season subscription offers brilliant musical experiences for the lovers of fine, traditional performances. The Playground Kids & Families Season, offering maximum fun for families with tickets to performances aimed at every member of the family, many during school holiday times. Each subscription is crafted to suit your needs, whether you plan to see two shows for the year, or every performance within the Joan, it will save you money, and the more you buy the more you save.

And for that someone who has everything, what better gift than a gift voucher, so they're spoiled for choice?
