When the Cambridge YMCA’s 185-seat, lovely Victorian theatre officially opened in 1897, a critical mission of the YMCA was clearly achieved. Our founders realized the importance of theatre arts, literacy, mentor-ship, entertainment, education and recreation. They understood the role these ideals played and the value provided to the greater community. Over one hundred years later, we strive to meet those ideals.
Narrative Dimensions of the Stage
The Proscenium is 19’8″ wide and 13’9″ high at plaster. Behind the proscenium, there are two short returns, going off-stage, the opening at its widest BEHIND the proscenium is 20’10”. From the proscenium to the up-stage wall measures 10’4″. The stage space is a trapezoid and so Upstage wall is smaller than the proscenium, measuring 17’9″. Extending from the proscenium is a stage extension. This measures 24′ across by 6’10” deep, making the total dimensions from US wall to apron 17’2″. Because the space is so irregular, we recommend coming and taking a look at it to help clarify these measurements.
The theatre is handicapped-accessible.
