Black Theatre Live

Upstairs at The Western

Upstairs at The Western

Upstairs at the Western is a fully equipped black-box theatre space, with pre-rigged lanterns, speakers and projection controlled by light and sound desks in the wing (stage left). The standard configuration is for 44 raked seats end on, with the first row at stage level and a 4m x 4m (depth x width) flat stage space. Extra rows of 8 seats at a time can be added at the expense of 1m of stage depth each time. ETC 20 channel light desk with EOS and Cobalt software. Yamaha digital sound console. 

For touring companies and monthly programmes, we provide a full theatre service, including digital and paper promotion of shows, ticket sales, get-in/out support, basic technical support, box-office and ushering, with prompt settlement and payment afterwards. The theatre has a dressing room (with fridge, microwave, kettle, tea and coffee) and is close to local shops, cafes and restaurants for cast and crew. 

Terms and conditions are usually box office shares for touring companies and joint production budgets for monthly programmes. One night, two nights, matinee and relaxed performance bookings taken. The theatre is also available for dress rehearsal in the days before bookings as the stage diary allows.
