Starting in Spring 2016, classes and performances take place in the new Fine Arts Instructional Center! The new building features Theatre spaces such as a Proscenium Thrust Theatre, a Studio Theatre with flexible seating, performance/dance labs, and state of the art classrooms. Performances in other sites throughout the campus and on tour are offered as well.
Touring opportunities include Children’s Theatre and Reader’s Theatre in schools throughout CT; the NYC Showcase of Student Talent in New York City; the Los Angeles Spring Break Program; and the month-long Summer in London program. The Theatre program also has guest artist residencies built into it each semester.
