Before it became a theater the building functioned as an old hospital and has 2 halls where the lighting programmer uses the Vibe. The theater is the main one with 166 seats and the second hall is an old chapel with 180 seats which used to be rented out to a local school for theatre technicians and stage technicians.

The theatre’s output is prolific. An average year (of which 2020 was NOT!), sees every season at more than 120 performances, including cabaret, theater, dance, music, and musicals, as well as performances and concerts by amateur art companies and art education performances for primary education.

There are 66 Dimmers for the Conventional Lighting, 16 GLG Ledpar’s for backlighting and 6 GLG Led Bars for the horizon.


The equipment that has been used at the Main hall include:

  • Dimmers 5x MA Lighting 12x 2,3kW Dimmer
