Darwin Entertainment Centre is the principal live entertainment venue in the Top End of the Northern Territory. Located in the heart of the city, the Darwin Entertainment Centre hosts major national and international acts as well as local Eisteddfod competitions, school concerts and Darwin-based artists.
Facilities include the Playhouse, a large, traditional proscenium arch theatre, seating approximately 1000, and the smaller more intimate Studio Theatre. The studio seats almost 300 in theatre mode, or just over 200 in cabaret configuration, with tables and chairs. There is also an exhibition gallery and rehearsal room.
The centre can play host to almost any kind of performance, large or small, and the equipment and facilities rival those in major venues around the world. The centre also has access for the physically disabled, and audio enhancement facilities in both theatres.
The Darwin Entertainment Centre box office is open Mondays to Fridays from 10am through to 5.30pm. As well as selling tickets for performances at the centre, the box office also handles tickets to outside events, including major sporting events and concerts.
