An unusual seating plan at The Crucible Theatre
The Crucible Theatre in Sheffield was opened in 1971, designed by international architectural firm RHWL. Unique features of the building include its adaptable stage and the fact that, thanks to seating on three sides of a square stage, every audience member is located no more than 20 metres from the action. Few such intimate settings are to be found in a theatre of this size and make the experience of attending a performance here unlike other venues in the world. More information on the seating plan of The Crucible Theatre can be found on StubHub, but no matter which seat you choose, you can be safe in the knowledge that you will be very close to the stage! For an even cosier setting, you can visit The Studio, a 400-seat auditorium housed in the same building. Whether you want to be moved to laughter or tears, or to be inspired by sporting greatness, tickets for The Crucible Theatre promise an experience like no other.
The Crucible Theatre: from sport to music
Besides being a premium performance venue, The Crucible Theatre is a producing theatre - numerous shows are designed and rehearsed in-house and the organisers pride themselves on their innovative programming. The theatre has won several national awards and, alongside venues such as the Liverpool Empire Theatre, Palace Theatre Manchester and Grand Opera House York, is a major venue for touring UK theatre companies. After undergoing an extensive refurbishment, The Crucible Theatre reopened in 2010 with an acclaimed performance of Ibsen's "An Enemy of the People" and regularly stages other classics as well as new writing, musicals, concerts, dance performances and comedies. Perhaps the most famous event, however, is the Betfred World Snooker Championship. This highlight event of The Crucible Theatre sees snooker fans descend on Sheffield from across the globe for a thrilling event featuring the sport's greatest players. No matter what you're here for, the theatre can be justifiably proud of its top-class facilities, fantastic seating and exciting programme - see it all for yourself with tickets for The Crucible Theatre, available now to buy or sell on StubHub.
