ABOUT THE THEATER ITSELF

LOCATION

 

Theatre Baton Rouge is located in the Mid-City district of Baton Rouge, LA, at the Bon Carré Business Center. The facility is home to two distinctive theatres, allowing TBR to produce and host a wide range of performances and events.

 

Main Stage

 

The 327-seat Main Stage Theatre, located in the main building, combines the intimacy of a small house while having the production capabilities of a larger professional theatre. Rows are lettered A through Q, so every location is equivalent to sitting in the front orchestra of a much larger house like the River Center or LSU Union. Since there is no center aisle, more patrons have the opportunity for a “front and center” experience. See the seating chart below to help you to decide on your seats.

 

The Studio

 

This intimate 95-seat space is ideal for the communal experience that can only come from being close to the action. The flexible space features  stepped stadium seating that allows excellent sight lines from all seats for a unique theatrical event. Seating for all performances at the Studio is General Admission.

 

Lobby & Social Room

 

The Main Stage Theatre has a spacious lobby and social room that can accommodate groups wishing to host a fundraiser, reception or celebration in conjunction with a theater performance or as an independent event. Contact the Box Office at (225) 924-6496 for more details.
