Behind the Scenes Glasshouse Tours

Have you ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes at an arts & entertainment venue like Glasshouse Port Macquarie? Learn all about the inner workings of our multi-faceted and complex venue in this holistic tour.

Our experienced and knowledgeable Tour Guides will demystify the magic of the theatre with demonstrations of back-stage mechanics like our intricate fly system, the new and innovative Glasshouse Studio seating setup and the plethora of stage effects our technicians can create with our extensive lighting system.

Explore the stage, dressing rooms and lighting bridges while learning about the bump-in/bump-out process, and see the heritage displays, orchestra pit and other back of house areas you may not yet know exist.

Delivered at a relaxed pace by our specially trained guides, tours take approximately 1.5 hours.
