Main Stage

Main Stage

The main cornerHOUSE performance space is an auditorium with raised and sloped stage, stage lighting system and PA facilities (a full specification is available on request). The auditorium seats up to 150 and has been used in a variety of configurations, some of which limit the seating capacity. (For example up to 75 people can be seated at cabaret tables.)

There is a smaller studio space which is a black box theatre that seats up to 60 and can be set up in a variety of ways to suit the needs of individual productions. Layout Staging blocks are available, as is lighting and sound. (This space doubles as the dressing room for larger productions on the main stage).

Please see the attached PDFs for dimensions of studio and main theatre spaces and example stage layouts and seating for studio.

The centre also has a box office and foyer area which has lighted exhibition areas and a licensed bar with further lit display spaces.

    Hi there,

    I am interested in hiring the CornerHouse theatre for a theatre school I am running during the Easter holidays. I used to come to HMOS summer school here when I was a child so know the theatre a little and have very fond memories there.
    I was wondering if you could let me know your availability to hire between april 3rd- April 23rd. Ideally we would like to run a 6 day course with rehearsals Monday to Friday and a performance Friday/Saturday night.
    We are in the early stages of planning what the show would be, but are likely to decide in the coming weeks.

    Thank you very much, looking forward to hearing from you.
