Our Venues

State Theatre Company enjoys some of the best venues in the country in which to present our productions and they are all located in the Drama Centre of the Adelaide Festival Centre.

Dunstan Playhouse
Our main performance home is the Dunstan Playhouse in the Drama Centre at the Adelaide Festival Centre. Often cited as the finest theatre for drama in Australia, The Dunstan Playhouse seats 590 people in two levels. Built for State Theatre Company and opened in 1974 our space also includes the Company’s extensive production workshop and rehearsal room.

Space Theatre
In addition we use the Space Theatre, also situated in the Drama Centre of the Adelaide Festival Centre. The Space Theatre is a 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, traverse stage or corner stage setting and, depending on configuration, seats anywhere between 200 to 350 people.

Her Majesty’s Theatre
We generally have one production on stage at Her Majesty’s Theatre, which seats just under 1,000 people. Her Majesty’s Theatre is located at 58 Grote Street, Adelaide.

State Theatre Company administration offices are located in the Lion Arts Centre, Corner Morphett Street and North Terrace. Please be aware there is no lift at our office and quite a few stairs. If you have issues with mobility, please feel free to call us instead 08 8415 5333.

  • While the  Adelaide Festival Centre is under redevelopment, please plan your trip and make sure you arrive at the theatre at least 20 minutes before the performance is due to start to avoid late admittance.
