The main theatre is designed to give an exceptional experience for patrons, performers and production teams alike.

Every aspect of the theatre design has been carefully considered based on the advice of theatre experts, stakeholder feedback and research of similar theatres across Australia.

The Studio offers a flexible space for a range of creative pursuits.

The 200-seat space will have retractable seating and be able to be completely blacked out, making it ideal for movie screenings, dance rehearsals and small-scale theatre productions.

The studio is cleverly designed to open up to the outdoor Soundshell and amphitheatre, becoming the stage for major outdoor events and festivals.

The new larger Soundshell opens up from the Studio, links easily to modern back-of-house facilities and looks out across the grassy amphitheatre. Improved access, sightlines and sound will provide a fantastic audience experience during outdoor events and festivals.
