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.

Royalty Theatre
This year one production, End of the Rainbow, will play at Royalty Theatre. Located at 65 Angas St, Adelaide, the theatre seats up to 620 people over two levels.

Odeon Theatre
In 2018 the Odeon Theatre in Norwood played host to several State Theatre Company productions. The Odeon features a traditional stage in a fully equipped flat floored theatre which seats over 200 people. The Odeon Theatre is located at 57a Queen Street, Norwood.

The Gods Of Strangers  had its World Premiere at this iconic Port Pirie Theatre. The Keith Michell Theatre is located at 106 Gertrude Street, Port Pirie.

Matthew Flinders Theatre
Terrestrial had its World Premiere in this classic space for generations of Adelaide drama students. The Matthew Flinders Theatre is located at Flinders University, Sturt Road, Bedford Park.
