Update December 2020
Due to the impact Coronavirus has had on the theatre and culture sector, it is currently unlikely that we will start booking live events (with an audience) into the Studio Theatre before September 2021 at the earliest. There are still a number of uncertainties around logistics and planning needed to bring audiences back into the theatre safely which we are currently working through. We’re still keen to hear from you though so if you have a production available for touring/presentation from autumn 2021 please get in touch to start a conversation at email@example.com.
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.
