What you get when you work at KXT

bAKEHOUSE Theatre Company launched KXT - Kings Cross Theatre in late 2015 to support Sydney's indie theatre scene and the local arts community. We've come up with a process that offers companies heaps of support and maximises their chances of firing on all cylinders on opening night.

We're investing in a sustainable ecology for indie theatre.


Here's how we do it:

Since we opened in 2015, we've been offering



That's right, we give you the gift of time itself! Bumping in a show on Monday, trying to be ready for a sneaky preview on Wednesday or Thursday before opening Friday, adds a huge risk to indie productions - if you've not hit the mark on opening night, you've missed the boat and your season isn't long enough for word of mouth to make up for it. At KXT we offer at just over half price an extra week of time in the venue subsidised by bAKEHOUSE. By the time you open, your show is running hot!



Along with a flat rate hire and the bAKEHOUSE subsidised week, KXT is one of the most affordable theatres in Sydney. We don't take a percentage of box office, so when your show is a hit you'll make some money.



We let you in early on the Monday, then offer easy key access to the space during your hire - the place is yours from 12 to midnight.



We promote your work across our social media platforms and marketing networks, including the Solotel chain of hotels and exposure at our neighbours within the growing Kings Cross Arts Precinct.



One of the best in Sydney for a small theatre. 3 phase power, a kick-ass lighting kit, great sound. Everything your designers need to make your work beautiful.



KXT supports local artists by exhibiting their work in our funky foyer - these exhibits are changed regularly so our audiences are never quite sure what they will encounter on their next visit to KXT. We'll do our best to ensure the artwork ties in with your show.


Come join us at KXT - be part of Sydney's newest theatre precinct.

Another feather in the cap for the Kings Cross Theatre, which hasn’t put a foot wrong in this, its first year.
