Theatre and Dance Department facilities

Kimmel Theatre, the department's largest performance space, boasts a 265-seat auditorium and the most current technology in theatre production. Key features include a full rigging system, computerized automated lighting, color mixing scrollers, LCD projection, and a state of the art sound system with wireless body mics.

The theatre is housed in Youngker Hall, which won an honor award for excellence in architecture in the American Institute of Architects (AIA) Central States Region when it opened in 2002.

Youngker is connected to historic Armstrong Hall, which underwent a major renovation when the former building was added. Armstrong gained an intimate black-box performance space—the Plumb-Fleming Studio Theatre, along with a spacious scene shop, modern classrooms, and office space.
