Factsheet - Dressing Rooms and Backstage

Dressing Rooms

There are 4 backstage dressing rooms, all with interconnecting doors. All dressing rooms are equipped with mirrors with lights and washbasins. Two dressing rooms measure 13' 6'' by 13' 2'' and can each accommodate 16 people, a further two dressing rooms are 8' 6'' by 13' 2'' and can each accommodate 9 people.

The Cellar below the stage may also be used as a changing area, although with more limited facilities.

The maximum number of people that can be accommodated backstage is 100 — this includes cast, crew, helpers and chaperones.

Backstage Drinks

There is a hot drinks and cold cans machine backstage for the use of cast and crew. It is not possible to have kettles or urns backstage due to the limited space available and safety requirements.

Ice creams can be ordered for the interval and bought backstage — to arrange this speak to the Front of House manager to obtain a form.

Backstage Access

To maintain the security and safety of cast and crew, backstage access has to be restricted to those involved in the production. People meeting cast and crew should do so at the Stage door. Adhesive badges are issued to all crew members; anyone backstage other than cast and identified crew members will be asked to leave.

Cast and crew should not go front of house during the interval for safety reasons.

The stage door and the pass door to the auditorium are protected by an electronic code lock. The appropriate access codes for your production will be notified to you before the hire period.
