Mingella Theatre view of seating from stage

Technical specifications for productions at Quay Arts

The seating in the Anthony Minghella Theatre is retractable to provide a studio space. The floor is wooden sprung. The stage has a white cyclorama and black full width tabs at the rear, and adjustable side masking. There is limited wing space, however a store room stage left can be used as extra wing space.

Stage Area

With the raked seating unit fully extended, there are 115 seats and approx 5m stage depth (to back tabs). An extra front row of floor-level seats is normally present, increasing audience capacity to 134.
