The Banyule Theatre consists of ten rows of tiered seating, providing for a total audience of 265.  The entrance foyers are attractively designed with timber and brick.  The theatre is carpeted and the seats have padded upholstery.  The stage area is approximately 7 metres in depth and 12 metres wide (height approx. 4.25 metres).  A drama studio located behind the stage/blackwall is of a similar size and can be used as additional space. There are two large stage wings, removing the need for a fly-tower and access to these is from the outside drive-way, which will enable easy delivery of stage scenery. Ample Dressing Rooms are fully equipped, including make-up mirrors, benches, hand basins, toilets and showers and have connecting doors to the stage-wings. The control room at the back of the tiered seating area is equipped with a dimmer board, sound console, tape-deck and CD players. Also within the complex is a Multi-Purpose Room (to accommodate up to 80 people) approx. 11 x 9 metres, suitable for seminars, displays and exhibitions. Also available is a kitchen/kiosk which has access to the foyer and Multi-Purpose Room.

The theatre complex is suitable for Drama/Musical Productions, Dance Concerts, Calisthenics displays, Musical Recitals, Rehearsals, Seminars/Lectures/Workshops/Debate and Art/Craft Exhibitions and has excellent car parking facilities
