The School of Theatre Arts is nationally known for the high quality of its productions and for its professional facilities. Four different rehearsal and performance spaces are used regularly.
|The McPherson Theatre, where faculty members and guest directors present a varied series of plays, classic and modern, comic and tragic, musical and non-musical, using methods of staging ranging from the traditional to the innovative.|
|The E. Melba Johnson Kirkpatrick Laboratory Theatre, a flexible performance space, where most plays are student-directed and student-designed, under the supervision of faculty members.|
|The Dance Studios, where dance concerts choreographed by faculty and students are rehearsed and occasionally performed.|
In addition, the Phoenix Theatre is a small space for experimental productions.
