The beauty of this theatre lies in its layout. This venue is suitable for a more intimate experience with the audience.
From production shows to seminars, conferences and product launches, the Dunstan Playhouse is a professional and cultured artistic space. Its popularity is reflective of the theatre groups who frequently base their productions in this venue.
State Theatre of South Australia has been based here since 1974 and uses the theatre, the rehearsal rooms and the extensive production workshop also housed in this second ‘shell’.
With redevelopment works underway, access to the Dunstan Playhouse has changed.
Approach the Dunstan Playhouse from the lane way between the Intercontinental Hotel and Adelaide Railway Station, walk north to the Riverbank. Or, cross the Riverbank Footbridge at Adelaide Oval, heading south to the Riverbank. There is no through access to the Dunstan Playhouse from King William Road or the Festival Theatre.
A drop off zone with two accessible car parks is located on Festival Drive East, accessible via Montefiore Road.
