Pre-Show Dining

Dining options at Frankston Arts Centre

Enjoy a drink or snack pre-show!

The Frankston Arts Centre bar is centrally located in the main theatre building and opens 1.5 hours prior to performances. 

We offer two dining choices to complete the ultimate theatre experience: over the bar (light meals), or a pre-show cocktail party (available only at selected shows).

Remember to avoid the queues by pre-ordering your interval drinks and snacks. Simply fill out an order form and pay at the bar prior to the performance - your refreshments will be waiting near the bar for you to collect at interval.

Pre-Show Cocktail Parties

On selected Season Shows this year we will be offering guests a pre-show cocktail party with special-themed food. This is the perfect way to enjoy your theatre experience - be treated to a complimentary arrival drink and then a delicious menu of canapés to set the scene. You can mingle with other theatre guests or claim a seating area to catch up with friends.  

Pre-show cocktail parties are available for the below upcoming shows. You can book online or phone 03 9784 1060.
