Built in 1907 and refurbished in 2009, the Oamaru Opera House holds a 548 seat auditorium. The Whitestone Contracting Auditorium is an Edwardian proscenium arch theatre. Complete with ornate plasterwork and gilding, it was fully refurbished in 2009 to recreate the grandeur of the 1907 Opera House.
Audience comfort is paramount and the generously spaced seating, excellent sightlines, wheelchair accessibility to both the stalls and dress circle, and airconditioning make any performance an enjoyable experience.
The Whitestone Contracting Auditorium can be hired in a number of configurations ranging from apron stage and stalls only through to full stage applications.
