The Dance Studio
As you can see from the image above, our dance studio is a delightful space with fully sprung floor and wall to wall mirrors into which light floods in.
Annabel's Studio is an entirely flexible space which is used for teaching, for exam presentation work, workshops and for smaller-scale productions. It is essentially a black box that can be configured in any number of ways.
The studio is equipped with lighting and sound equipment, and sets are built to the requirements of each production. Set design is one of the options that candidates can specialise in at A-level.
Venue 2 is the newest building added to the drama facilities. Erected in 2007, it serves as a teaching space, rehearsal room and a comfortable performance venue seating for approximately 60 people depending on the seating layout.
The Memorial Hall
The Memorial Hall, or 'Mem Hall' as its often referred to, with its sophisticated sound and lighting system can seat up to 730 people and is the chosen venue for major productions such as the December Musical and annual Lower School Production.
This versatile space accommodates a wide range of styles and productions can be staged conventionally or in the round.
The whole performing arts team at Dauntsey’s did a fantastic job of realising our production of Lord of the Flies. The talent, storytelling and staging were exceptional and all of us that saw the show found the experience very moving.
