State Theatre Company enjoys some of the best venues in the country in which to present our productions.
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
The recently redeveloped Her Majesty’s Theatre is a stylish fusion of modern architecture, whilst still maintaining the integrity of the original heritage design. The gorgeous proscenium theatre seats close to 1500 people across three levels.
The Maj is truly a world class theatre, with state-of-the-art lighting and sound technology, the widest proscenium arch and deepest fly tower of any commercial theatre in Australia, and a rehearsal room the same size as the stage itself. The building has also been designed to allow for greater patron accessibility, bars and amenities on every level, plus stunning views of the Adelaide Hills and city surrounds from the upper levels.
Located at the University of Adelaide, Kintore Ave, city, the Scott Theatre will host State Theatre Company South Australia’s production of Dance Nation for Adelaide Festival in February.
Tangent Talks are held at Bradley Forum, Level 5, Hawke Building, University of South Australia, City West campus, 50-55 North Tce, Adelaide.
