About the Miller High Life Theatre

The Miller High Life Theatre’s curtain system enhances its flexibility.

The Miller High Life Theatre is a 4,087-seat venue with two sloped tiers of seats providing excellent sight lines and comfort, back-of-house amenities to match, and built-in flexibility to reduce capacity to more intimate settings of 2,562 (shown here) or 1,291 seats.

Easy load-in is achieved with flat and level dock-to-stage access. Touring productions love its generous backstage and dressing room space, and 21st-century physical plant, sound, lighting, and acoustical systems.

Two attached side halls, Kilbourn and Plankinton, offer fantastic ancillary space for rehearsals, crew catering, meet & greets, press rooms, vendor expos, and small shows seating up to 700.

A huge rotunda lobby completes the fan experience with spectacular space for concessions, merchandise sales, receptions, and general patron circulation.
