Welcome to The Hills Shire Council's Pioneer Theatre and Cultural Centre  


The Pioneer Theatre and Community Centre is a cultural asset co-located with The Hills Shire Council library on the ground floor of the Castle Grand building on the corner of Castle and Pennant Streets, Castle Hill.
The Pioneer Theatre is a flat floor 350+ seat configurable performance space designed for theatrical works, acoustic and contemporary music, cabaret, large corporate functions, school events, conferences, and social usage including weddings, family gatherings, film screenings and parties. 
It is an intimate and versatile ‘black box’ style theatre, with configurable seating, staging and layout options enabling it to provide a range of experiences to audiences.


The Pioneer Theatre is wheelchair accessible from Community Centre foyers to the main entrance doors of the venue. Once inside there are 4 wheelchair seating positions on the flat floor. There is a public elevator from the carpark to a covered, outside atrium with direct access to the theatre foyers. At this same level in the foyers are the box office, administration and limited mobility toilets adjacent to the entrance to the Pioneer Theatre.
