The Bondi Pavilion Theatre was officially opened by the Prime Minister of Australia Gough Whitlam in 1974 and since then has seen an amazing range of theatre productions, actors, directors and technicians through it's doors. The Bondi Pavilion Theatre has been the training ground to many artists over the decades who have gone on to have great careers in Australia and around the world.
