Gasworks Theatre

The Gasworks Theatre is a black box performance space with a flat, sprung floor and a raked seating bank. With the addition of rows on the floor, the standard capacity for most theatre shows is 192. The theatre can also accommodate cabaret-style seating for up to 50 patrons, around 10 tables, situated in front of the seating bank (total audience numbers remain at 192 for this set up). The theatre can fit up to 300 seats for other types of events, such as conferences, that can utilise a reduced stage space.

The venue is particularly suited to productions where intimate contact between the audience and the performers is required. The theatre is wheelchair accessible and fully air-conditioned.

There is an extensive stock of lighting and sound equipment available to hirers of the space.

Dressing room facilities are also available, and the smaller Studio Theatre can be hired as additional dressing room space, or as a green room, and the Studio Theatre and Garden Studio can be hired or for rehearsals.

Theatre hirers receive a marketing kit as part of their hire fee, which includes a step-by-step guide to promoting your production.

During Melbourne’s major festivals (including the Midsumma Festival, Melbourne International Comedy Festival and the Melbourne Fringe Festival), Gasworks partners with theatre hirers to produce a festival season.
