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.[1]

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.
