Presenting the best performing arts and entertainment in the Barrington Coast.

We offer first class facilities for the performing arts, from school productions and amateur theatre to artists of national and international acclaim.

The Manning Entertainment Centre is a 505 seat theatre in Taree serving residents and visitors to the Barrington Coast. The centre was built as a bicentennial project in 1987 and has a long history of attracting the highest quality performers to the region including the Australian Ballet, Dame Joan Sutherland, Circus Oz, Guy Sebastian and the Doug Anthony Allstars.

The Manning Entertainment Centre is an important asset for local performers, with regular use by local schools, dance schools and groups including the Taree Arts Council, Manning Valley Choral Society and Taree & District Eisteddfod.
