Century has a long history over several generations of theatre management, production of live entertainment and cinema exhibition.
Century is one of Australia’s most creative, innovative and entrepreneurial live entertainment and theatre operators. It has grown from humble one-venue beginnings to become a multi-layered business operating four theatres, a performing arts centre; producing theatre, comedy, music, festivals and special events.
Century manages and operates multiple venues in Sydney including Enmore Theatre, Metro Theatre and Factory Theatre, the Comedy Store, Manning House at the University of Sydney and The Concourse performing arts centre in Chatswood. Century also produces, presents and tours events, festivals, acts and artists, locally, nationally and internationally. Sydney Comedy Festival and Perth International Comedy Festival were created and developed in-house.
The Century management team are creative and people-orientated. Century operates from a position of “can do”, creating productions for venues, forming strategic partnerships with presenters and always looking for new ways to create and increase business.
Century has a strong track record of nurturing and developing talent. Its venues are programmed with the very best emerging and established acts. The organisation is well placed to bring its programming skills and bookings to Newcastle and to ensure the commercial success of the Victoria Theatre as a medium-sized theatre for years to come.
Century is committed to reviving the Victoria Theatre in Newcastle as a working heritage theatre.
