Whether you’re a serious about theater, or you’re just thinking about trying out for a small part, you’ll appreciate our state-of-the-art, 250-seat performance space, which is designed for flexibility. The seating and stage areas can be moved to create a traditional theater with stage, a thrust-stage, or a theater-in-the-round. The facility boasts a fly system, computerized lighting system, sound system, and an attached scene shop. Downstairs are the theater studio (used as rehearsal space), costume shop, and dressing rooms. Students act, of course, but also serve as set and lighting crews, costume designers, and box office managers. Whatever your level of interest, there’s a role for you here!
Acting and the Theater II
Acting and the Theatre II provides students with the technique and skills to study theatre performance at the college or conservatory level. You’ll be exposed to diverse methods for creating a role through the imagination and the physical life of the character.
Costume + Scene Shops
Our technical theater program builds small worlds that allow the audience to suspend disbelief as a play unfolds. Walls and windows, doors and balconies—our crew creates them all, lending reality, or unreality, as the setting dictates. Similarly, our costume design program stitches together garments for period pieces and modern productions alike.
