When not presenting a production of its own, the Fugard theatre is a facilitated venue for hire.
There is a grid to hang scenic elements from but no facility for flying scenery, wing space is also restricted, as is the size of the scene dock door. Access from the loading area is through the stage left off-stage wing space where a domestic sized door ope has been extended in height to facilitate the bringing of scenic pieces to the stage.
An interesting and useful feature of the stage is the option of putting the main acting area of it at a rake of three optional levels of pitch. Not only that but the raked stage is in three sections, each one hinged at the front, up-stage of the stage apron and can be raised independently of each other. The three options on the angle of the rake are governed by hanging brackets at the back of the stage where the back end height of the rake can be fixed. At the very back of the stage there is a fixed two tier choir/chorus platform traversing the width of the stage. The upper height of the rake can be fixed to the lower of the two tiers
The stage also accommodates two trap doors, one as a storage hatch to under stage storage and the other as a scenic or performance attribute.
