Stage 2

Stage 2, located opposite Stage 1, is typically employed as the ancillary or second-unit stage to Stage 1.

Several productions have used Stage 1 and 2 in conjunction, including Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark which created the house set in Stage 1 and the basement in Stage 2. The King’s Daughter (The Moon and The Sun) used Stage 1 for the grotto and Stage 2 for the king’s bed chamber and other sets. The 2018 Microsoft tech summit was also spread across both stages.

Other film and TV productions to have used Stage 2 include Oddball, The Wheel, and Bad Mothers. Opera Australia uses the space for rehearsals.

Stage 2 can host large scale audience-based shows of up to 600 participants including Australia’s Got Talent and Iron Chef.
