Facilities

Dorothy Menker Theater

The 575-seat Dorothy Menker Theater is the center's main attraction. This proscenium theater is equipped with a mechanically controlled orchestra pit that can be raised and lowered to fit performance needs. Balcony and main floor seating is augmented by four exclusive box seat areas. The theater also features a massive fly tower for elaborate scene changes, and both first- and second-floor lobbies.

John and Angeline Oremus Theater

The John and Angeline Oremus Theater is a fully equipped black box theater with flexible seating to accommodate a comprehensive range of performances, from traditional to experimental. And like the Dorothy Menker Theater, this 150-seat theater has direct access to expansive support areas, including scenery and costume shops, and rehearsal and dressing rooms.
