Phoenix Building Floor Plan


The Department of Theatre is housed in the Phoenix building located on the southwest of the UVic campus. Constructed in 1982, the Phoenix building is considered to be one of the finest teaching and performance facilities in Canada. At its heart are three distinct stage forms - proscenium, thrust and studio - used for mainstage productions, SATCo productions and classrooms. These three stages are supported by changerooms, scenery, costume, lighting and movement workshops, studios and classrooms.

Each year, the students, faculty and staff of the department present Phoenix Theatre mainstage season, a series of plays which are open to the public.

All department theatre spaces used regularly during the academic year and are not usually available for rental or use outside the department. Inquires about use of the space should be made to
