COPACC’s shows are truly of the highest calibre, the kind that you will also see in the main metropolitan theatres but at a significantly lower ticket price! Why go to Melbourne when you can see it here, where we continue to bring you world class performances across a wide variety of genres? There is a good dose of comedy with Swing Man and The Melbourne International Comedy Festival Roadshow; incisive political commentary with A Prudent Man; some great music shows with Taste of Tamworth, Isaiah Firebrace and the 60s sounds of Sun Rising – The Songs that Made Memphis.

We have some great new innovations for 2018, including:


  • Introducing a series of four Cabaret shows. Yes, we know, there have been some offered in the past, but there are more this year, encompassing cross-dressing hilarity – Larry and the Dame; German pop-punk musical madness – Supermusician, and circus with a bit of music and burlesque – Paris Underground ENCORE. To cap it off, at the end of the year we have COPACC Cabaret, highlighting the talent in our community. All our cabaret shows will be in the Civic Hall, seated at tables. Patrons can bring their own platters of food and there will be a bar serving alcohol and other drinks. Relax with friends and enjoy!
  • We have a couple of Sunday matinees called Afternoon Delights, join us for the exquisite classical music of The Chris Howlett and Rosie Reibl Duo and the fun and frolics of the musical Pirates of Penzance. These are presented at the very civilized time of 3pm to allow for families and seniors to attend and enjoy.
  • A greater choice with ticket prices this year, including:

• Under 30s tickets now get a massive 40% discount on the full price, to encourage the younger members of our community to attend shows. The only exception is the Melbourne International Comedy Festival Roadshow.

• In addition to our Concession and Under 30s tickets, there is now a Group ticket category for four or more people with a 10% discount. Make up a party of people for a fun night out!

• We are introducing a tiered pricing system, so depending on where you choose to sit in the Theatre, the ticket prices alter significantly. There are three levels available, with the best seats in the house being A Reserve at the full price, then B Reserve with 10% discount and lastly C Reserve with 15% discount.

• The tiered pricing discounts still apply if you purchase Concession tickets, Under 30s tickets or Group tickets. By introducing the tiered pricing system we are making it even more affordable to come to COPACC and enjoy some live performances in 2018. You can potentially save up to 55% on the full ticket price!

  • Subscriptions are no longer available as there are now terrific discounts on offer to our patrons.
  • Lastly, don’t forget that you can book tickets to all shows online now, so choose your seats from the comfort of your home!
