The Blue Room Theatre (60 capacity) and Studio (49 capacity) are intimate and flexible black box spaces.
The Blue Room Theatre venues have been operational for 28 years and attract audiences who are willing to take risks, enjoy diversity in performance and champion innovation. The theatres are upstairs in our heritage-listed venue adjacent to an established bar which opens one hour before the first show and closes late. Drinks are cheap and audiences and artists alike hang around post-show to make the most of this wondrous time of year.
We welcome applications ranging from tried and tested crowd pleasers to exploratory ideas. Please be aware that the seating is fixed and won’t be able to shift per performance.
The venues are intimate and can accommodate small-to-medium productions with professional design that do not require a large amount of space for storage. Each venue has an accompanying dressing room which is shared with all productions in that performance space (normally three per night).
We will provide a Production Manager who will be present for your technical rehearsal and available during all changeovers between shows. Please be aware that you’ll need to provide a Stage Manager who will be responsible for operating each of your performances.

“It was an absolute pleasure. I am still learning as a producer, so getting that level of admin and production support was fantastic. It has a loyal following which assisted with sales, and a supportive team that welcomed us FIFO artists with open arms. Will be applying again.” Michael Abercromby – Producer & Writer, Lucidity
