The Award winning Bakehouse Theatre is located in the eastern part of the CBD, just a stone's throw from The Garden of Unearthly Delights, around the corner from the Hutt Street restaurant strip, and a short stroll to Rundle Mall - the centre of the city's shopping precinct.

It is a charming old building full of history (but also full of modern technical equipment) where we love to make both you and your audiences feel welcome.
We have two theatre spaces, each with its own bar and foyer area where you can meet friends, chat before the show and even take your drinks into the theatre with you.

Here is what one of our theatre hirers said about her experience at the Bakehouse in the 2015 Fringe:-

"It was such a wonderful experience!! The Bakehouse staff went above and beyond with everything I needed to make "Handle It" run as smoothly as possible.   Huge thanks to Stephen and Matt for doing such a brilliant job with the tech and Peter for running the box office, and Pamela for all the support leading up to and during the season.  And everyone for coming along!!   I'll certainly never forget it.   Can't wait to come back. Xxx – Laura Jackson (NSW)"
