In one piece of very good news for the Sydney arts and entertainment industry the Giant Dwarf Theatre are set to open the doors to their band new venue this weekend.

The grand opening comes just 10 days after an exorbitant rent hike forced the Giant Dwarf out of their old home at 199 Cleveland Street, a place the had called home since 2014. Giant Dwarf Theatre will now be located at 280 Cleveland Street, Surry Hills.

Giant Dwarf Theatre has secured a short term lease to the premises vacated in late 2019, after a decade in residence, by Sydney’s only artist-run live music venue Venue 505 (which continues to operate in Newtown as part of the Old 505 Theatre).

“This lease is a lifeline for Giant Dwarf Theatre,” said co-founders Nikita Agzarian and Julian Morrow. “We thought we’d have to close forever, but now we’ve got a few months to try and keep Giant Dwarf alive as a supportive home for comedy, music, storytelling, theatre, podcasting – and all sorts of new and exciting content – in Sydney.

The new Giant Dwarf Theatre will open its doors at 6pm on Friday 20th March, ahead of FREE public opening show starting at 7:30pm which will feature an array of impressive Sydney artists to be announced soon.
