Features of Holden Street Theatres

Both buildings are heritage listed and boast beautiful wooden ceilings and incredible acoustics.

The original stained glass windows in The Arch are back lit which are used in conjunction with halogen lights in the ceiling to accentuate the wood and to create stunning house lights.

The Studio offers a more contemporary feel with it's black box style and can offer a more versatile canvas for designers. The configuration is adaptable and details on this can be obtained through the venue.

Technical Equipment of Holden Street Theatres

Our equipment is more than capable of handling the needs of most theatre, dance and musical productions including multiple shows through fringe. However, as many companies like to bring in their own equipment we are happy and able to accommodate this as well.

We are supported by Novatech Pty Ltd and can order equipment in for you or direct you to them should you need.

We also hire out some items such as our Silent Disco set up.

Technical Support of Holden Street Theatres

Our resident Technical Manager is on hand to support you in finding your way around our gear and for showing you where everything is.

Your hire will include maintenance and replacement should anything go wrong. Please discuss this when you confirm your booking.

We are always keen to increase the opportunities for Holden Street to present great performances and we are always open to trying new spaces. In the past we have housed site specific work in caravans, gardens, shipping containers and turned the boardroom of our neighbors office into a wonderfully intimate space known as The Manse.

We also have Thebarton Theatre and the spaces in that venue that can be used for performances. For information on Thebarton Theatre please click on the tile above and follow the prompts.
