Peacock Theatre

Salamanca Art Centre’s unique theatre is an end-stage performance space that has been created at the foot of a historic quarry, named after the company that produced jams and juices on the site for half a century.

The Peacock Theatre is the venue of choice for intimate live productions accommodating dance, hybrid music and film and has load-in facilities from the street.

The Peacock Theatre is a unique performance and event venue on the ground floor of the Salamanca Arts Centre. With a magnificent natural rock face as its backdrop, maximum Fixed Seating Capacity of 131 (General Admission / unnumbered) seats, and an affordable price tag, the Peacock Theatre is one of Hobart’s most popular arts, and entertainment venues.

The Peacock Theatre has dressing room space for up to 12 people, a workshop, a bathroom (including shower), and a laundry. Access to the theatre workshop is possible via Kelly’s Lane. Disabled access to the Theatre is via the double doors opening from the Courtyard directly onto the stage area. Limited vehicle access to the Courtyard via Woobys Lane can be arranged.
