This 388-seat theatre is the venue for most of our fully produced shows, from large-scale dramas to Broadway musicals to performances by Zodiaque, the department’s dance company.

The excellent lighting and sound systems, along with multiple traps, adjustable proscenium walls, pit-lift, and 40 lines sets, make this a wonderful place for all of our students to practice their craft, whether as performers, designers or technicians.

Black Box Theatre


The department produces and supports several smaller-scale productions and workshops each season in this flexible black box theatre. The space can be configured in a variety of ways, with seating of 100-120.

This space provides our performance majors with the opportunity to play in a more intimate setting and presents a different set of challenges and opportunities for our design and technology students.

This unique “diamond-in-a-diamond” shaped space seats up to 340 and yet still manages to have an intimate feel. For about a decade, PBS’s Mark Russell political satire shows were broadcast from this theatre.

The KCT is currently used as an acting and dance classroom and as a venue for student-produced shows.
