The Upstairs Theatre has fixed seating for an audience of 210 and, while it is primarily a proscenium arch stage, it has also been adapted for thrust staging. This is where we stage many of our large-scale productions such as, "Into The Woods," and, "Anything Goes."
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 IGCSE and A Level Drama & Theatre Studies. The Theatre also houses the ATV Room (Ampleforth Television) where everything from news reports to recordings of productions can be made.
More recently, our state of the art Performing Arts Centre has been built - a specialist studio with a sprung floor, dance bars, mirrored walls and professional theatre sound and lighting facilities. This is the perfect venue for Dance lessons and shows, as well as evening concerts and Music and Drama classes.
