Main Stage Theater


The 3,600-square-foot theater is a flexible performance space. The space features a tension wire grid, state-of-the-art lighting, audio, and video systems, and automated rigging systems. Its flexibility makes it possible for theater productions to be presented in any configuration: proscenium, thrust, in-the-round, and other creative arrangements.

The theater serves as a hub not only for faculty-directed dance and theater productions, but also for guest artists and student-originated work. As such, it is more than a place for artistic showings; it is also a classroom where students can explore new performing arts trends and experiment with new works before presenting them to the Macalester and Twin Cities communities.

Due to its frequent use by students, staff, and faculty, the Theater is not available for rental at this time.
