Venue Information

La Mama has two performance venues situated in the heart of Carlton. La Mama HQ our original venue at 205 Faraday Street, Carlton was rebuilt in 2021 and is now fully physically accessible, comes with a bonus rehearsal space and additional office space. La Mama Courthouse, at 349 Drummond Street, Carlton has been managed by La Mama since the mid-1990s, and is serving as a performance venue for live theatre, poetry, music and cabaret as well as playreadings and children’s performances.

Lock out!

Please note that because of the intimate space, it is not possible to admit late-comers. We lock the doors at show time and in most cases are unable to transfer the tickets. Please ensure you leave plenty of time for traffic and parking. Our bar opens an hour before show time and we always have free tea and coffee so come early and relax. 

Content Warnings

Note that most productions at La Mama are new works, usually being seen for the first time on opening night. The vast range of wonderful artistic teams primarily prepare marketing content for their own work and as such there will be inconsistencies in content warnings. If you have any questions or concerns or would like any more information about content warnings please call the La Mama office or email info@lamama.com.au.
