State Theatre Company enjoys some of the best venues in the country in which to present our productions.
An iconic property located at 57a Queen Street, Norwood, The Odeon is home to Australian Dance Theatre. The theatre with retractable raked seating can be configured for performances, lectures, seminars and other events, and is supported by quality sound and audio-visual equipment.
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.
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
Once regarded as the finest theatre in Australia, back in her Tivoli days, Her Majesty’s Theatre has been reinvigorated, returning her to world-class status. A stylish fusion of modern architecture, whilst still maintaining the integrity of the original heritage design; the gorgeous proscenium theatre, seating close to 1500 people across three levels.
Tangent Talks are held at the State Library South Australia, North Terrace in the Basil Hetzel Lecture Theatre.
