The Macalester Theater and Dance Department is proud to inhabit a brand new building, opened in January 2019.

Each space—whether studio, shop, or classroom—is designed for flexible, creative learning, and will prepare future performance artists to enter a constantly evolving creative field. The building contains three studio spaces, a theater with flexible seating and state-of-the art technology, and a costume shop, scene shop, and design studio outfitted with exciting new tools for the technologies of performance.

This new Theater and Dance Building also completes the Janet Wallace Fine Arts Center, which houses Macalester’s three arts departments: Theater and Dance, Art and Art History, and Music.

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