Theodore and Adele Shank Theatre

The Theodore and Adele Shank Theatre is a black box theatre that seats 100 audience members in its current proscenium configuration. The theatre is seated on a first-come, first-served basis, so no seating chart is available or necessary.

Pictured above is the theatre as seen in This is a Chair, directed by Dr. D.J. Hopkins (MFA Dramaturgy '96, PhD '03). Below left is the Theodore and Adele Shank Theatre in Arrangements, lighting design by Jason H. Thompson (MFA '04). Below right is another view of the Theodore and Adele Shank Theatre, in Nuptual Flight by MFA Playwright Julia Edwards, with the open loading doors visible in the back of the set.
