Founded in 1839 the Athenaeum is part of Melbourne’s East End Theatre District, and hosts a range of theatre, comedy and music performances.
Live at the Athenaeum
The Athenaeum Theatre sadly announces the temporary postponement of all live audience performances until further notice. Our online offering Melbourne Digital Concert Hall continues to broadcast live from the theatre.
Ticketek have advised The Athenaeum Theatre that they will contact all ticket holders to provide refunds and/or rescheduling your attendance. We ask that ticket holders do not come to the Theatre as it will be closed to the public.
The decision to close the Theatre is based on advice issued by the Health Authorities in order to slow the spread of COVID-19. The Theatre will maintain communication with all employees, artists and hirers as the situation develops.
The Athenaeum Theatre cares deeply about the health and safety of its audiences, artists and staff and we believe this is a cautious and prudent response in an evolving situation here in Melbourne.
We sincerely thank everybody for your understanding and patience as we work as hard as we can to help you during these difficult times.
