Theatre & Dance Facilities
Kennedy TheatreOur mainstage venue, Kennedy Theatre, is a beautiful 600-seat facility. It was built to accommodate diverse staging techniques. The building's beautiful design, along with adjacent Jefferson Hall (East-West Center) are credited to the internationally known architect I.M. Pei.
Earle Ernst Lab TheatreIn addition to Kennedy Theatre, the complex also includes a 150-seat "black-box" Earle Ernst Lab Theatre. The lab theatre is home to our prime time and late night venues.
The Dance StudioA new dance studio opened in Spring 2013, bringing the Dance Program on to upper campus near Kennedy Theatre. A beautiful airy dance studio, offices, classroom, and restroom and shower facilities are included in the new facility.
