MENG CONCERT HALL
Lauded for its outstanding acoustics, the 800-seat Vaughncille Joseph Meng Concert Hall engages the listener with its subtleties and unobstructed sound. Performances by the University's music ensembles and guest artists produce a synergy not felt in traditional university concert halls.
The 250-seat James D. Young Theatre is the major stage for dramatic productions presented by the Department of Theatre & Dance. This thrust-stage theatre is designed to bring the actors to the center of the space with seating on three sides, both on the floor level and in the balcony. This intimate space is designed to engage the audience and make the theatre-going experience more meaningful.
The 150-seat Hallberg Theatre is built in the black box tradition, and includes flexible seating from in the round to a more traditional formation. This space features experimental and rarely performed Theatre productions and also showcases new plays.
