The first stage is known as the Southam Hall and is basically designed for Orchestra, ballets or other major visiting events and shows. The second hall known as The Theater is designed for both English and French theater and dance. The third stage, known as The Studio, is another theater for performances which need a more close and warm atmosphere. The Fourth Stage is generally used for community programs.
The NAC English Theater is now running shows for its 2014-15 season, which is being directed by the imaginative Jillian Keiley. This is her second season as director after taking the reigns from the previous director Peter Hinton in 2012.
The attendance for the current season so far has already reached a huge total of sixty two thousand. The attendances for the last three years are forty eight thousand, fifty two thousand and fifty eight thousand, respectively. When Keiley was asked what attracts the viewers to come back for her work, she said that it remains a mystery. The last Christmas show directed by Keiley, "The Sound of Music" received extensions twice and became the most viewed show in the forty four year history of the art center.
