Stalls: are rows of seats configured on a flat floor and located closest to the stage on the main auditorium level. AA row is not always available depending on the promoter and the performance.
Raised Stalls: are located on the main auditorium level as well but are configured in a grandstand style format (tiered seating).
Gallery: is located upstairs above the main auditorium level and stage and is configured in a grandstand style format (tiered seating).
Allocated Seating: is a reserved seating event where each ticket is assigned a specific seat in the venue at the time of purchase. Seats are typically identified by row number/letter, seat number, and sometimes by section.
General Admission: is a ticketed event with no assigned seat numbers; this means patrons who have purchased a ticket to the performance or event can simply find their own seat upon entering the theatre.
The venue offers a comprehensive range of cutting-edge equipment and experienced staff capable of assisting to enhance a range of performing arts including theatre, dance, musicals, concerts, school performances, workshops, multimedia presentations and band performances.
