    • Hi Maureen,

      The Playhouse is a small theatre, so you will get a fairly close view from wherever you choose.

      I have attached a copy of the seating plan here which will open as a PDF for you. If you mean row “CC” you will be right at the front, off to either side. I prefer a front on view personally, so I would go for rows A-D in the dress circle middle or the stalls.

      Hope this helps!
      Best regards,
