More Information

Oh You Beautiful Stage (OYBS) was first developed in 1997 and has since been updated in 2006, 2012 & 2018. During this time OYBS has become a major reference source for performing arts centres, planners, architects and industry specialists in Australia as well as internationally. 

“The challenge of designing and building a truly successful theatre is as addictive as the theatre experience itself—and equally hard to grasp and to define. The combination of all the facilities in their right relationship and size is only the beginning of the story. To functional suitability must be added the magic of ambience and intimacy, qualities that will lift a room from being a clinical auditorium to a loved theatre and a foyer from being a milling space to a favourite community hang-out.

This substantially more detailed fourth edition aims to help the owners, initiators and designers of theatres to make their renovation, upgrade or new-build projects as successful as possible.” 

Virginia Ross – on behalf of the project team.
