Seating Configurations

The Sheridan Opera House has the unique ability to host events that require full theater seating, partial theater seating, cabaret seating, or even no seating at all depending on our schedule. Building capacity ranges from 238-265 people. Please see the venue measurements and diagrams with respective capacities below.

For private events and weddings, please contact Ronnie Palamar at (970)728-6363 ext. 1 to discuss table layouts for seated dinner options and visit www.SheridanOperaHouseRentals.com for details on what tables are included in private rentals.

Minor variations on these basic layouts can be made; but changes must be approved prior to the event. A 20' wide X 8' deep "thrust" or stage extension is available on a limited basis. This configuration works particularly well for theatrical performances and weddings which often require additional on-stage space.

Please note that installing the thrust does require the removal of Rows A and B on the main floor which will reduce seating capacity by twenty.
