Genesian Theatre inside

Celebrating their 70th year as a company in 2014, The Genesian Theatre Company is a community theatre operating for 60 years from an historic church in Kent Street, in the heart of the Sydney CBD.

The building which houses The Genesian Theatre Company was originally St John’s Church, and dates from 1868. It has served as both a church and a poor school until 1932 when it became the Kursaal Theatre, housing the Sydney Repertory Company. In 1938 it became the first Matthew Talbot Hostel. Since 1954 it has been the home of The Genesian Theatre Company which was formed in 1944.
