Our 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.
In 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.
A 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.
