Equipped with industry-standard equipment, it provides our students with the very best training facilities in the region for technical theatre, stage management, contemporary acting, dance and performing arts. It also plays host to regular shows performed by touring groups, community and school groups, comedians and bands, as well as our own performing and production art students.
