Caine Lyric Theatre
The Caine Lyric Theatre is the 12th oldest theatre still standing in the United States. Some argue 8th if you look purely at building age. Seating 370 in both an orchestra and balcony, it is a wonderful reminder of the beauty and splendor of bygone days. Used both by the University and the community, many forms of entertainment still appear, including: opera, ballet, drama, stand-up comedy, private showings, premieres, and in the summer is home to the Old Lyric Repertory Company.

Black Box Studio
Though our smallest space, the Black Box is also our main teaching facility, most acting classes are taught in here. Holding only 80-97, depending on configuration, more experimental works and stronger audience involvement happen here more than anywhere. Independent productions are also housed in the Black Box by the Theatre Student Association. This is where cutting edge acting begins.Black Box location map
