the latter two don't make much sense, especially "stage" (you can rarely find a theatre without a stage).
Generally I want to point out that amphitheatres should be round (circular or oval), places like these are not amphitheatres:
https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Epidauros#/media/File:Theater_Epidauros.jpg (~330BC, one kf the most famous ancient theatres), at least not in German or Italian, and English Wikipedia seems to confirm this, but I have also found websites describing it as amphitheatre
> looking for input on how to reconcile arts_centre and theatre.
Wikipedia en says about arts centres: An art centre or arts center is distinct from an art gallery or art museum. An arts centre is a functional community centre with a specific remit to encourage arts practice and to provide facilities such as theatre space, gallery space, venues for musical performance, workshop areas, educational facilities, technical equipment, etc.
This seems quite different to a theatre (a "theatre space" already indicates it is not a "real" theatre, where everything is focused on the theatre.
