Hayes Theatre Co was established at the former Darlinghurst Theatre after the Darlinghurst Theatre Company moved to the nearby Eternity Playhouse.
Its first production, a revival of Sweet Charity, opened in January 2014. The production transferred to the Sydney Opera House and a national tour, and was nominated for and received multiple Helpmann Awards.
