Opened in 2014, the Orkney Theatre along with the Kirkwall Grammar School, situated in The Meadows Kirkwall, forms an entertainment and educational complex. The theatre was built with additional funding from the European Rural Development Fund and Orkney Island Council, and is managed and operated on behalf of the people of Orkney by a charitable body, simply called 'Orkney Theatre'.
The theatre has a seating capacity of 384 with 4 dedicated wheelchair spaces.
Seats in Rows A & B can be removed along with floor covering to reveal an orchestra pit (when needed). Behind the large stage there is a spacious back stage area and two dressing rooms.There is also a Café area which can be used for teas, coffees and soft drinks, or to sell alcohol for licenced events.
Being a community theatre there is no box office for ticket sales. Information on where to buy tickets, given to us by the promoter, can be viewed, along with future events is available here.
