Studios & Shops
This space is used for acting classes and as a rehearsal space for department productions. The room is configured like the Black Box Theatre, but more modestly equipped for lighting and sound. Many excellent student-initiated shows have been produced in this space.
Most of our dance classes and rehearsals for dance concerts happen in these studios. Each studio has a marley floor, an individual sound system, and 18-foot high mirrors on two sides.
This shop houses all the tools and equipment used for building a show. Everything is done here, from carpentry to painting to welding. We place particular emphasis on providing a safe environment in which to work, so the shop includes a separate welding booth and dust collection system.
With its natural light and windows overlooking Lake LaSalle, this large airy room provides an excellent environment for designing and sewing costumes.
This large well-appointed room is dedicated to props and other craft-related projects.
This suite includes a drafting studio, lighting lab and a ten-seat computer lab with design software, including Vectorworks, WYSIWIG, and Adobe Photoshop. A separate Project Studio for Sound Design is located adjacent to the Black Box theatre, and houses our ProTools recording suite.
