The 2400 square feet of stage floor lends itself to large dinner parties among other exciting possibilities.
WILLIAMS THEATRE This 70’ x 70’ flexible black box theatre seats anywhere from 270 to 350 patrons in variable seating configurations depending on your event’s specific goals. The Williams Theatre can also be stripped down to a bare 4900 square foot sprung stage floor that can seat 250 guests, ideal for a wedding reception. Overhead you’ll find a full fly house that can hang anything from lighting and sets to party decorations.
YORK ARENA THEATRE The York Theatre is a 1600 square foot black box theatre space that can seat up to 100 in a flexible arrangement. This more intimate space is often used for smaller receptions and theatre and dance rehearsals.
