The stage can be modified to accommodate an orchestral pit. All the rows of seats are curved to face the stage and each row is elevated above the row in front, so that the occupant of every seat in the house can have an unobstructed view of the stage. There are timber acoustic baffles below the ceiling which enhance the acoustic qualities of the auditorium and the walls of the auditorium are lined with attractive timber panels.The 234-seat "Studio Underground" is a black box theatre. The "Courtyard" is an outdoor area that can be configured to seat up to 200 people.WEB,weblink Theatre Specifications, State Theatre Centre of Western Australia, 23 July 2013, Although there is an inconspicuous lift, the main entry to the first floor foyer of the theatre is by a staircase over which hang spectacular decorative elements.
