The theatre department is primarily housed in the Limestone Center Theatre. The small 150-seat proscenium theatre provides an intimate showcase for a variety of productions. A recent addition to the Limestone Campus, the Limestone Center houses not only the theatre itself, but also a state-of-the-art scene shop, costume shop, prop and costume storage, classroom space, and multiple work areas.
Larger productions make use of Fullerton Auditorium, an acoustically excellent hall with seating for 975. Newly renovated, Fullerton is one of the finest performing arts facilities in the region with state-of-the-art lighting and sound. Fullerton Auditorium is perfect for a variety of performance needs, including main stage musicals and drama. Fullerton is a versatile space that can also be transformed into an intimate black box theatre for student productions.
In addition to Fullerton Auditorium, students enjoy everyday instruction in the Carroll Fine Arts building. Restored in 1993, this building houses classrooms and a formal recital hall for smaller more intimate performances
