Biographical history

The University Studio Theatre was located adjacent to The Stanley Burbury Theatre , University Centre on the Sandy Bay Campus. The theatre was octagonal and able to accommodate an audience of 150 on tiered seating which afforded an excellent view of the acting area. Access to the theatre was through a foyer shared with the University Centre. The theatre had a 14 metre diameter octagonal sprung floor, with all round access and surrounded by a 2.4 metre high balcony. Many different seating arrangements were possible and it was particularly suitable for theatre in the round and three-quarter staging. the theatre with its different style was intended to complement the traditional qualities of the Theatre Royal. It was available for theatre groups outside of the University.
