Victoria Girls High School, Beaufort St, Grahamstown, Makhanda, 6139

The Gymnasium is an end-on performance space with raked scaffolding seating. This space is ideally used for drama. The stage is 6mm ply black plywood, set on the existing sprung floor. The stage has a black surround, which provides a very narrow backstage crossover behind the traverse. There is a dressing room and a toilet. The loading entrance is from the rear of the school down Hill Street and along Huntley Street.
