About the Auditorium


Opened in 1986, the Central Bank Auditorium was designed not only to serve the Bank’s needs, but also as a civic contribution towards the enhancement of the performing arts in Trinidad and Tobago. Located at the corner of lower St. Vincent Street and Wrightson Road, over the years the Auditorium has earned a reputation as being one of the more popular venues for the presentation of Trinidad and Tobago’s many cultural expressions. Beginning with Two Choices, the Auditorium’s first dramatic production, produced by The UWI Players Workshop in May 1986, the range of performances has since expanded to include musicals, concerts, meetings, conferences and dance.

Over the past three decades the Auditorium’s stage has been the canvas upon which many of our cultural masterpieces have been performed by artistes such as, David Rudder, Machel Montano, Mungal Patasar, Sat Balkaransingh, Andre Tanker, Etienne Charles and Pat Bishop, to name a few. Internationally-acclaimed artistes the likes of, Terence Blanchard, Arturo Tappin and Andy Narell have also performed at the Auditorium. Dramatic and musical performances are a staple at the Auditorium: Raymond Choo Kong’s Norman; The Lydian Singers’ Koanga; The Baggasse Company’s Madame Butterfly; Dereck Walcott’s Remembrance; Richard Ragoobarsingh Productions’ Mary Could Dance and, most recently, JCS Productions’ Mahalia, have all performed to full houses at the theatre.

In 2012 the Auditorium was completely refurbished and now has a brand new look utilizing the Bank’s new corporate colours. The renovations result in an enhanced audience experience, yet maintaining the intimacy and ambience for which the theatre is renowned. Also included in the upgrade were the dressing rooms and backstage areas which are now equipped with LED TV screens that allow cast and crew members to monitor onstage movements.

Though the Auditorium has a relatively small seating capacity of 411, its modern computerized lighting and sound technologies together with professional technical and administrative services are on par with other larger local and international performing spaces.
