Ticket Information:

The Octagon Theatre is an intimate thrust stage venue which has hosted opera, classical and popular music, dance, theatre, stand-up comedy and seminars.

Its design, with 683 tiered seats, was based on advice from the noted British director Sir Tyrone Guthrie, and provides an intimate performance experience for large groups of people. Among those to have performed at the theatre are Steven Berkoff, Paco Pena, Marianne Faithfull, Sean Hughes and the West Australian Opera.

Versatility is a key feature of The Octagon with the removal of the thrust stage to allow installation of 75 additional seats. Removing half the stage reveals an orchestra pit.

Facilities include a green room, dressing rooms for 70 cast members and a 120 square metre rehearsal studio with a sprung floor. A comprehensive lighting and sound rig and large lamp stock ensure most technical requirements can be provided in-house.

The venue's intimacy and excellent sightlines enhance all performance genres. The bar and auditorium have been refurbished and the entrance designed to enable easier access to the service area for wheelchair patrons.

The Octagon box office has an in-house ticketing system.

All technical and front of house staff are provided by University Theatres.
