Theater Building exterior

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.
