The Bridge House Theatre was designed by Michael Reardon Associates and opened on May 1st 2000 by Dame Judi Dench. Capacity ranges from 275 to 310 depending on configuration. The theatre has an attractive foyer area, two spacious dressing rooms, excellent get-in facilities and a wide range of modern lighting and sound equipment.
The theatre has three main strands of use. Firstly, to enhance the position of the performing arts at Warwick school with an intended increase in both the scale and quality of product. Secondly, the theatre is available for use by the large number of organisations in the local community. This includes both professional (Warwick Arts Society and Warwickshire TradArts) and amateur. The third strand is for Bridge House Theatre itself to promote professional work from the available small and middle scale touring theatre companies.
