- Everest-Rohrer Auditorium
- Our main stage, built in 1996, the Auditorium seats 860 people and is equipped with state-of-the-art lighting and sound systems. The proscenium stage is 48 feet wide by 32 feet deep and includes an orchestra pit for musical presentations. The Theatre Arts department produces three shows on the main stage each academic year; a comedy, a serious drama or tragedy and a musical. Dressing rooms, rehearsal space and the costume shop are located on the lower level of the Auditorium.
- We use the Octorium, or S-200, as our studio theatre. With a seating capacity of only 160, it provides a space for shows that require a more intimate actor/audience relationship. Students are also encouraged to present plays of which they have a special interest.
- Scenic Studio
- Scenery and props are constructed in our 1600 square foot Scenic Studio. Students learn the safe and correct usage of a variety of wood-working tools and welding equipment. The studio is located across campus, a situation that could be considered unfortunate. We look at it as a teaching tool. The construction techniques used to create our scenery are those practiced in the industry for repertory and touring sets.
- The Cave (The Costume and Prop Shop)
- The Cave houses our Costume Shop, costumes, props, and furniture. It is located directly under the stage, hence the origin of the name. When the auditorium first opened, the large room was empty, but shortly thereafter we received a costume collection containing somewhere near 2,000 pieces. As of now, the Cave houses our more than 7,000- piece costume and prop shop.
