West Thames College
This new theatre replaced a rather unsatisfactory studio theatre, and was part of a wholesale Performing Arts upgrade in a completely new Tertiary College.
The theatre is a 200 seat facility with retractable seating extending over a fully level floor. A gallery level extends all-round the space, and there is a similar technical gallery at the next level up which houses hoist motors for the flying equipment, with lighting bridges across the theatre, allowing stage lighting from virtually anywhere in the space. The theatre is equipped to a professional level.
In addition to the theatre, Theatretech were involved in the design of a Recording Studio with six individual booths, a TV Studio, and the backstage accommodation for the theatre.
Mackenzie Wheeler were the architects for the theatre and for the complete College rebuild.
