This page will take you on a brief virtual tour of Seaford Little Theatre, allowing you a sneaky glimpse into all our nooks and crannies. If you click on the thumbnail pictures, you will see them enlarged and in greater detail.

Seaford Little Theatre Exterior Approaching the theatre, you begin to get a taste of the evening's entertainment to come, as lights pick out the advertising hoarding announcing the current production.
Theatre Foyer On entering the foyer you will be greeted by one of the many hardworking people who operate front of house, ready to take your ticket, sell you a programme and show you to your seat.
Lighting Box Above here is the lighting box, full of computerised technical wizardry, where the lighting and sound crew work their magic (when not eating, playing poker, eating, trying to work out what page we are on and eating.)
Coffee Lounge From the main entrance you can pass into the coffee room, where refreshments (tea, coffee, wine, and biscuits, along with ices in the main auditorium) are available during performances.
Seaford Dramatic Society Logo Also in this room is a memorial to George Wheeler, one of the founders and first president of the theatre. This takes the form of a carved monogram, using the letters of the original name: Seaford Dramatic Society.
Theatre Auditorium The main auditorium is compact and intimate, but well able to seat almost 100, with raked seating for almost half its capacity, and the ability to provide access for wheelchairs quite easily.
Main Stage And beyond the electrically operated curtains sits the stage which, although small, is surprisingly capable of accommodating an enormous variety of sets, from the simple to detailed period designs.
Green Room Across the wings and behind the stage is the holding pen for the actors, where we keep them safe and try not to get them over-excited, as they prepare for the inevitably superb performance to come!
Props Area To one side of this room is one of the many props storage areas, a treasure trove of scene-setting goodies, some of which date back decades (just like many of the actors).
Wardrobe Also in this vicinity is the wardrobe, a tiny space crammed to the ceiling with a wealth of costumes and period dress.
Men's Dressing Room Further along the corridor is the men's dressing room, a space no self respecting cat would allow itself to be swung in. Not an area in which to suffer from claustrophobia or shyness.
Women's Dressing Room Opposite here is the women's dressing room, fractionally larger than
the men's and with a slightly more fragrant odour!
Side Stage Through the other door and we are on the opposite side of the stage,
where there is a small area for the Stage Manager and prompt. This is also where the performers wish they had spent more time learning their lines before stepping out in front of the lights.
Workshop Finally there is the workshop storage used for set building, which is located either side of the stage, and is the starting point for all the miraculous transformations that take place before each new production.

Now you've seen what we look like, why not find out more about our history on the theatre history page.
