Town Hall Theatre Campbelltown
The Town Hall Theatre is located in the Campbelltown CBD a short walk from the Arts Centre precinct and public transport. Regular theatrical productions can be seen at the Town Hall Theatre.
The current Town Hall Theatre occupies two heritage buildings. The building on the north side was the Town Hall, while the adjoining building was the original Fire Station. The original Town Hall was built by “The Sons of Temperance” in 1862 and was bought by the Council in 1884 for the sum of £800. In the early 1900s the Town Hall was hired out in the evenings for the screening of silent movies. Since 1980 it has been the home of the Campbelltown Theatre Group.
The Theatre is said to be haunted by the ghost of Fred Fisher, whose demise in 1826 has been made famous through the Legend of Fisher’s Ghost. George Worrall, who was executed for the murder of Fred Fisher, rented the land on which these buildings stand. Frederick Fisher was living in Mr Worrell’s house at the time of his murder. You can tour the theatre in the regular Campbelltown Investigative Ghost Tours.
