Summer 2022

A superb array of theatre, dance, music, festivals, and exhibitions.

Live performances are warming up this Summer at Adelaide Festival Centre!

Christmas is coming and so are the performances to get you into the festive spirit - Christmas Junior Proms along with The Ten Tenors. Just in time for the school holidays, you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to family shows, including The 13-Storey Treehouse, The Gruffalo and Guess How Much I Love You, all coming to Dunstan Playhouse.

The Centre is abuzz with excitement in anticipation for the reopening of Festival Theatre in February 2022. This will be celebrated with multiple performance over days including Rock the House, Students Got Talent, the Walk of Fame unveiling, Adelaide Symphony Orchestra’s John Williams at 90 and The Stones Sticky Fingers plus many more celebrations. We will also be celebrating the opening of the highly anticipated Children’s Gallery in Festival Theatre which will include a day of free family fun.

We also welcome An American in Paris to Her Majesty’s Theatre in February - don’t miss this breathtaking musical in a ground-breaking collaboration between The Australian Ballet and GWB Entertainment. 

We pay tribute to many legends throughout summer including You Got It, celebrating the legendary Roy Orbison alongside Eclipse – Pink Floyd Orchestrated, Jersey Boys Orchestrated, Music of the Night – celebrating the music of Andrew Lloyd Webber, Gotta Have Faith – The Music of George Michael Orchestrated and Buddy Holly in Concert.

InSpace, Adelaide Festival Centre’s development program, has some amazing performances planned over the summer months including Womb, a ceremonial dance theatre production seeking reconnection and rebirth and Bárbaros, a work that plays on the antagonism between instinct and the restraints of civilisation.
