Where will performances be held in the interim?

Council is working closely with the performing arts community and key users/hirers of the Cairns Civic Theatre to identify alternative venues for performances during the construction phase.

Coinciding with The Precinct project, Council is investing $2.2 million to upgrade the Tanks Art to create a performance space in Tank 3 and reconfigure Tank 5 to increase audience capacity. Climate control and improved back of house and technical components are also included making the venue suitable for a wider range of performing arts. Works will take place during the normal wet-season "shut down" and are due for completion in March 2016.
