Valley Theatre is a professional performance space within our school, used for our own in-house productions, assemblies and presentations as well as community performances.
We have a full, professional level lighting system, including a variety of intelligent lighting fixtures (moving lights, UV lights, LED colour wash lights, etc.). These are all operated from a professional lighting board with two touch screens for ease of use.
We have a set of 4 handheld wireless microphones, 10 wireless headset microphones and a variety of wired microphones and audio equipment, for use in assemblies and performances. All audio connection points are connected to a 32 channel mixer in our sound/lighting booth at the back of the theatre space.
We have a box office and refreshment serving area for use during performances in our dining room, which doubles as a foyer area. There is a large backstage area which includes a store room, changing rooms and a green room. We also have the use of our school gym, which is behind the theatre and ideal for larger groups or set pieces.
The Valley Theatre is used for our own performances, but we also have a developing event schedule, including professional touring productions. Tickets for these are made available to other schools.
The Valley Theatre is available to hire and is suitable for school performances, youth dance or theatre groups and amateur dramatic societies. The space is also perfect for regular rehearsals or meetings and all of the equipment in the theatre is available to use or hire.
