The Melba and Beyond

During festivals and large scale events we open The Melba and Beyond – an extension of The Melba with 2 extra performance spaces within the Circus Oz home base, plus a pop-up bar for pre/post/between show hangs. When events are presented in multiple venues the venue will be listed on our website and on your ticket. 

The Sawtooth

The Sawtooth is used as a more intimate venue for smaller scale shows with an audience capacity of 40 - 60. When not in use for performances, The Sawtooth also doubles as our boutique pop-up bar, serving a selection of refreshments and beverages.

The Studio

The Studio is our black-box venue with an audience capacity of 30 - 40. It is a perfect space for solo shows, storytelling, clowning, workshops and lectures and other small scale performances.
