Visit the department

The Maggie Allesee Department of Theatre and Dance is pleased to offer tour visits of our facilities to students interested in pursuing studies in theatre or dance. This walking tour exposes students to all aspects of the theatre and dance programs.

During the visit we will walk through rehearsal rooms, classrooms, performance venues, lighting labs and the production center where we build the costumes and sets that you see on stage.

All visits begin at 4:00 p.m. Please wear comfortable shoes. Family members are welcomed.

Please meet at the Theatre and Dance Main Office located on the third floor of Old Main, 4841 Cass Avenue (the clock tower building), Suite 3207. Use the campus map and allow plenty of time to park. The nearest parking is in Structure 6 and Lot 60.  Please refer to Visitor Parking for payment information.
