Overview

The Station Theatre is a fully equipped with raked seating for 140, giving great views of the stage at all locations. There is lots of free parking, disabled access, sound loop, licensed bar and tea and coffee facilities.Modern lighting, sound and projection facilities allow for a great audio visual experience with the 10 metre stage large enough to accommodate reasonably large casts and stage scenery.The Theatre is located at the southern end of the Billy Trail and has been cleverly converted from a disused Goods Shed, that was left when the train lines were pulled up in the 1960's.Run by Hayling Island Amateur Dramatic Society, the Theatre offers plays, comedies, musicals, music events and many other forms of entertainment from both amateur and professional groups.
