Converted in the late 1970s from a church to a concert venue, The Rondo is a thriving theater in the art-inclined heritage city of Bath. Run entirely by volunteers, the intimate 105-seat space with proscenium arch staging has a relaxed atmosphere and unpretentious decor. The venue puts on a wide variety of performance pieces. Professional touring companies stage traditional works like Shakespeare as well as lesser-known works not often performed in larger theaters. Amateur companies and student productions are equally well placed, as the space is best used with minimal settings and emphasis on strong performance skills from the artists.
