Frankston Arts Centre (FAC) is your local venue to see and participate in performing and visual arts. With 812 performances in the past year, the calendar is packed full of exciting events to suit everyone.
FAC operates from two buildings on Davey Street Frankston: The big green building above Frankston Library and Cube 37 right next door.
The Main Theatre seats 800 people and attracts big-name performing arts companies including Bell Shakespeare, Australian Ballet, Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, Melbourne International Comedy Festival and Circus Oz who perform at FAC on their regional tours each year. The brand new bar offers a great selection of pre-show and interval refreshments, as well as providing a priority line for members. It is also the perfect venue for schools to hire for annual performances.
The 194-seat, flexible performance space in Cube 37 sets the stage for intimate music, dance, circus and community performances. Cube 37 is your art space, offering a discounted hire rate for community groups. It is the place to indulge your artistic creativity, whatever your ability, and is home to an impressive range of art, theatre and circus workshops, including programs tailored to school students and children. This is your invitation to get involved!
FAC has visual art exhibition spaces in the foyer areas of both Cube 37 and the Main Theatre. With 73 exhibitions being shown in the past year, there is always something new and exciting on, and entry is free.
The function centre is well set-up for corporate events and private functions, catering for up to 500 people. It is also close to public transport and has an underground car park with 270 spaces.
FAC was designed by renowned Australian architect, Daryl Jackson, and was opened in 1995 by then Prime Minister, Hon. Paul Keating.
