Performers and set designers test their mettle for real in our “black box” style theatre.

With flexible seating for up to 100, the studio theatre also boasts the latest in professional lighting and sound equipment.

Technical expertise is supplied by a dedicated team who show new hands the ropes (and lights, and props, and speakers). The collaborative productions we stage are always popular events in our calendar.
