The Foundry Theatre draws its name from the concept of a traditional foundry – a place of transformation and creation. This name is a nod to the industrial heritage of the site, symbolizing a space that continually transforms and forges creativity, ready to welcome each new show with renewed vigor. The theatre’s design and branding encapsulate both its functional and emotive qualities, aiming to offer a unique, intimate theatrical experience where performers and audiences can closely interact, making each visit distinctive.

As construction continues, the Foundry Theatre’s opening program will be announced in the coming months, with Ticketmaster as the official ticketing partner. Patrons can look forward to an array of premium entertainment in a venue where the magic of theatre is brought close enough to touch.
