An intimate theatre within walking distance of Milsons Point train station, we attended a fabulous matinee performance. If I lived in Sydney, I would join as a member. Not cheap ($65), but worth it for the quality.

Sorting Out Rachel engages the audience warmly, and no moment more so then when the grandparent bests the obnoxious manipulative teen. this play has a more gentle and humorous mood that is much softer than the biting satire of earlier Williamson plays. Perhaps that is...More

We had front row seats and felt truly immersed in the play. The actors were first rate and the plot was hilarious. i would urge you to see 'Taking Steps' before it runs out!

This is a very old theatre, over the water at Kirribilli. Many of our most famous actors/actresses have made their debut at the Ensemble. The late Hayes Gordon conducted acting/directing./producing classes here for many years. They put on a big range of different productions and...More

I think your family is a little young for the Ensemble. I would recommend Aladdin the musical and check the Opera House for special shows, especially since it is the holidays.
