The Hilton Theatre

Theatre General Information

The Hilton College Theatre was officially opened in 1991 with a performance of THE ROYAL HUNT OF THE SUN which was directed by Ant Lovell a master at Hilton College at the time. Since the opening the theatre proudly stages many school productions, guest speakers as well as carefully selected professional stage and music productions year round.

Other than its extensive use as a performance venue, we also offer guest speaker and conference facilities. 


  • The theatre auditorium is raked and seats 470.
  • The stage floor, in front of the proscenium arch, can be removed to reveal an orchestra pit.
  • We have 4 fully equipped dressing rooms and a Green Room under the stage.
  • The dressing rooms can accommodate approximately 80 performers.


  • A fully automated large screen and HDMI cabling enables the speaker to control presentations from the stage (Apple product equipment must be requested in advance)
  • We have installed a MAdot2 digital lighting desk and can offer high quality sound with our 16 channel sound desk. 
  • We have cabling, microphones, stands, smoke machine on hand and can accommodate most requests.
  • We outsource professional lighting and sound technicians to run most major productions in the venue.
