The 7,500m2 arts building includes a main space, second space, dance space, drama space, as well as café, bars and supporting public and back of house facilities.
The 1,200m2 main space has a 620-seat proscenium arch theatre with hexagonal chandeliers that show a cross section of Doncaster-produced steel ropes and reference to the town’s industrial prowess.
The second space has a 615m2 area with 200-seated/300-standing theatre.
The education suite has 365m2 space with dance and drama spaces and a meeting space, each with a capacity of 60 people. The studios are double height, with sprung and semi-sprung floors respectively, while the single height exhibition room opens up into the foyer to create an extra flexible space for events.
Graham Whitehead, head of marketing and communications at Cast, said: "The architecture of the building very much complements and signifies what we’re trying to do as a new organisation. Its aim of being an iconic symbol within the town and something that Doncaster can be proud of very much reflects our own ethos."
The building has sustainable features and has been funded by the Arts Council England.
