Berkeley Repertory Roda Theatre

Berkeley, CA | arts/entertainment
1/2

The Roda Theatre creates an epic space with the proportions for significant new shows while retaining an intimate engagement with the audience.

Site Plan

Compact and intimate, the Roda’s 600-seat proscenium theater offers a large stage, full fly tower, and adjustable stage floor. The new theater creates a strong street presence through a dramatic three-story lobby, balcony, and stair that overlook Downtown Berkeley’s Arts District. The addition’s red brick façade and courtyard link the new theater to the existing 400-seat house and the neighboring Berkeley Rep School of Theatre, completing a half-block entertainment complex. The Roda serves as a cornerstone and catalyst for the success of Berkeley’s Arts District.
