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.

The Studio has 80 ETC dimmers and an easy to access lighting bridges. We also programme cinema into this space and have a Sony 4K cinema projector that can also be used, as well as a retractable screen (height 3.37m, width 7.66m). There is also access to a keyboard, upright piano and a Steinway grand piano, as well as star cloth if needed. The space also benefits from an easy to access loading dock and back stage facilities. A member of the Technical Team will be on hand to assist with the get in, get out and to ensure the smooth running of the show from a technical point of view.

We programme across genres in this space, including cinema, comedy, theatre, music, dance and talks. See our Studio Theatre: Programming Guidance for more information.
