For large performance groups

The large stage (16m deep by 11 to 15m variable width) is ideal for dance and other large performance groups. It is supported by a brilliantly lit, fully-mirrored and dividable dressing room of 15m x 5m and comprehensive toilet and shower facilities.

In addition, a dance studio function room of 15 m x 11m can be used as a warm-up studio, an overflow area for cast or, with its sweeping views over Fremantle and the ocean beyond, a function room before, during intervals, or after the performance.

The Curtin Theatre auditorium is encased on three sides by high-ceiling glassed foyers, easily capable of accommodating all audiences, and with easy access to the outdoor promenade, lawns and terraced amphitheatre. The foyers are equipped for the hanging of artworks, displays boards and banners.

Our Curtin Theatre staff would be glad to assist you in successfully bringing your event to fruition. Our staff are experienced professionals who know their craft and can provide technical and event production assistance to ensure a smooth and successful presentation.
