King William Road, Adelaide CBD, Adelaide
The Festival Theatre is the largest proscenium arch theatre in Adelaide, seating close to 2000 people.
It was designed as both a lyric theatre and concert hall, and is used not only for theatrical productions and large concerts, but also for graduation ceremonies, seminars and many other functions. Its huge backstage area makes the stage area one of the largest in the southern hemisphere and a hot favourite of companies with large sets.
The Dunstan Playhouse is a more intimate venue, seating 620 people in two levels.
The State Theatre of South Australia has been based here since 1974 and uses the theatre, the rehearsal rooms and the extensive production workshop also housed in this second ‘shell’.
The Space Theatre is an extremely versatile studio theatre with no traditional stage or fixed seating, so that its configuration is completely flexible.
It can be turned into a theatre in the round, a corner stage setting or a cabaret venue and depending on configuration seats anywhere between 200 to 350 people.
Her majesty's Theatre was built in 1913 and originally called the Tivoli.
The soon-to-be-infamous Lilli Langtry was the star of opening night, which set the tone for the theatre’s colourful role in Adelaide's theatre history. Her Majesty's Theatre seats 1009 people.
The Amphitheatre is our outdoor venue, with raked seating for 600 people overlooking Elder Park and the River Torrens. It is used a lot for community events and free entertainment over summer.
