The Whitehorse Centre’s theatre is available to hire for performances, workshops, rehearsals and conference presentations.

The Theatre is a professional performing arts space with extensive technical facilities. Seating 408 people (plus six wheelchair spaces), the auditorium has fixed seating on a gentle gradient with two side aisles.

The versatile space can also be used for presentations and is perfect for large AGMs, seminars and conferences. The theatre comes fully equipped for any presentation, with a professional lighting rig, sound system, ceiling mounted data projector and full size cinema screen for your use.

Meeting hire includes the services of a technician for up to four hours and one usher (additional ushers may be required depending on the audience size).

Hire of the theatre is available on a stand-alone basis, or in conjunction with other facilities within the venue.

The centre also features a multipurpose space called the Soundshell, which can be used as a closed-rehearsal space or opened up to form an external stage facing an amphitheatre-style lawn. 

The centre offers phone, counter and online ticketing services for theatrical productions, seminars and other community events.
