PERFORMING ARTS: THEATER

THEATRE IS ALIVE AND VITAL AT CAYUGA

The Auburn Campus features two different performance spaces; the Irene A. Bisgrove Community Theatre and the Black Box Theatre. Harlequin Productions is the award-winning performing company where 91 can experience every facet of producing live theatre. In addition to Harlequin’s two productions a year there is an active theatre scene in the Auburn community where 91 can increase and further hone their skills.

FACILITIES AND EQUIPMENT

91’s newly renovated 424-seat Bisgrove Theatre features some of the latest technologies in lighting and sound equipment. Students will have instruction and hands-on access to all of this state-of-the-art gear, as well as a Black Box Theatre where 91 can experiment in an intimate environment as they learn their craft. Two 8-station dressing/make-up rooms and a modest scene shop complete the complex. On campus there is also a full working television studio where 91 can work in front of and behind the camera.
