The Walcott Warner Theatre

Walcott Warner Theatre


The Walcott Warner Theatre (WWT) was named after two icons of the performing arts in the Caribbean – the late Honorable Derek Walcott, poet and playwright of St. Lucia, and celebrated director, the late Earl Warner of Barbados. 

The Theatre houses a state-of-the-art black box theatre. The stage and the seating are not fixed allowing for the space to become a Hall, or to be configured as a Proscenium Stage (audience has equal view of stage), or a Thrust Theatre configuration (audience on three sides of stage).  This multi-purpose space can seat 252 persons, but may be modified based on the configuration of the stage and seating arrangements to seat up to 360 patrons. A Kawai Grand Piano is also available for rent. 

The Theatre has a white Cyclorama which can be used as a screen, a ceiling mounted projector for Audio/Visual or film screening purposes and has built in lighting and sound reinforcement. Two dressing rooms are located backstage and are fully equipped with bathroom and shower facilities.

The Foyer, Terrace and Bar for the purpose of a Concessionaire is included. 

A non-refundable Booking Fee of Bd$250.00 and Public Liability Insurance is required.
