About Princess Theatre
Melbourne’s iconic Princess Theatre is regarded by many as Melbourne’s most spectacular landmark. Dating back as far as 1854, the theatre was purchased by Marriner Theatres in 1986 and plans were put in place for its total refurbishment and to ensure its future viability as a live theatre venue. The Princess Theatre reopened in 1989 with the musical ‘Les Miserables’ followed by ‘The Phantom of the Opera’ which established a new record for the longest-running show ever staged in Victoria. The theatre can currently hold up to 1500 patrons over its three levels; Stalls, Dress Circle and Grand Circle. The original chandelier and many of the building’s bespoke interior features are still in place. Other world-class stage productions to have played at this theatre include Cats, Mama Mia!, The Producers, Dirty Dancing, Jersey Boys, South Pacific, Hairspray and ONCE.
