New performing arts venue The Round opens in Melbourne’s east


New performing arts venue The Round has opened in Melbourne’s east offering state-of-the-art function and rehearsal spaces.

Building upon the legacy of the former Whitehorse Centre in Nunawading, The Round houses a 600-plus seat proscenium theatre, 200 seat studio theatre, two multipurpose rehearsal studios and versatile function spaces.

“Whitehorse City Council is incredibly excited to present The Round and unveil the new, world-class venue which we hope will become the cultural heart of Melbourne’s East. The Round has been designed to broaden the opportunities for our community to connect with the arts, as well as with one another, and be enjoyed for generations to come,” said Mark Lane, Mayor of Whitehorse City Council.

Set in expansive parklands, The Round is also home to a purpose-built soundshell for festivals and outdoor events, creating an entirely new stage for gatherings of all shapes and sizes heading into the warmer months.
