Festival Theatre is the largest proscenium arch theatre in Adelaide, seating close to 2000 people. It was designed as both a lyric theatre and concert hall, and is used not only for theatrical productions and large concerts, but also for graduation ceremonies, seminars and many other functions. Its huge backstage area makes the stage area one of the largest in the southern hemisphere and a hot favourite of companies with large sets.
It also houses the Silver Jubilee Organ, a remarkable ‘hovering’ pipe organ built and donated to mark the Silver Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II.
Festival Theatre is located on King William Road, Adelaide.
