Main House

Theatre by the Lake’s Main House is our largest performance space and plays host to a year-round programme of home produced and incoming work.

It is a comfortable, modern auditorium with a modern twist on the traditional proscenium arch. Sightlines are perfect from almost every one of the 389 seats on three levels. Actors and audiences alike enjoy the theatre’s intimacy and excellent acoustics. It is easily accessible for customers with disabilities with options of sitting in the stalls, circle or boxes.

The Main House is home to Theatre by the Lake’s own productions of established plays and new commissions showing plays ranging from Shakespeare to Ayckbourn. Touring companies also fill the stage with performances of dance, drama, music, opera, comedy. It is also the primary venue for four annual festivals.

Please be aware that for customers under 5 foot tall, the seats in the front row of the circle may not be suitable.
