The theatre at Ampleforth College offers two different acting spaces. The Upstairs Theatre has fixed seating for an audience of 210 and whilst it is primarily a proscenium arch stage, it has also been adapted for thrust staging.
The Downstairs Theatre is a smaller, more intimate space, capable of seating up to 100 people. It combines the flexibility of an open space with an unusual sunken floor (the remains of a plunge bath) that allows for the creation of several levels. Both venues are used not only for College productions but also for AS and A2 Theatre Studies. The Theatre also houses the ATV Room (Ampleforth Television) where everything from news reports to recordings of productions can be made.
