The "black box" design of the Studio Theatre makes for an ingenious performance space dedicated to the demands of small scale performances. Developed on the courtier model,
the Studio's flexible space accommodates proscenium style drama, theatre in the round,
experimental formats and cabaret style dinner theatre. It is also the perfect space for
multi-media and corporate presentations.
The 180 seat house (maximum capacity) is an incredibly versatile room. Retractable seating and wrap-around loges allow for a variety of seating configurations. The Studio Theatre is acoustically protected from neighboring rooms as well as from the outside and it is hard-wired to the Centre's state of the art recording studio. Panels and curtains provide exceptional acoustic versatility to accommodate the most exacting artistic standards.
The most contemporary room in the Centre, the Studio Theatre is part futuristic, part Bauhaus with a stunning mixture of black and steel, accented by pale blue, comfortably modern chairs. A house track lighting system and a comprehensive grid lighting system for the stage complete an exceptionally inspiring room.
