studio theatre


Our Studio Theatre is a home for live events across art-forms. It’s a space in the heart of Newport that should excite, entertain, inspire and most importantly of all, should bring together our multi-cultural and diverse community. A meeting point for all. An ambitious programme that brings not-to-be-missed experiences and stories from across Wales and the world to the city of Newport.

Studio Theatre Technical Overview

We have two multi-use theatre spaces at The Riverfront. The Studio Theatre is our smaller, more intimate theatre space. The Studio is an excellent multi use theatre space which can hold 128 audience members in raked theatre style or 100 in cabaret style on the flat floor. There is also the option of thrust or in the round seating. This set-up will reduce capacity so will need to be discussed with the team before suitable capacities for the performance can be agreed upon.

Our team is always looking for companies to collaborate and co-produce with. Generally speaking, we embark on one co-production at studio scale per season and plan these a minimum of 12 months in advance (The Riverfront’s programming is separated into two seasons, Spring – Summer season and Autumn – Winter season.
