Waterman Theatre, home to the mainstage theatre productions, is currently under renovation.  Below is the original 1960's theatre and the artist rendering for our new, state-of-the-art space. Tyler Hall closed for renovation in June 2014 and is scheduled to reopen in fall 2016.

Our new space will seat 410, have direct elevator access from the lobby and prime handicap accessible seating areas. The College has embarked on a "Take Your Seat Campaign" for alumni and passionate community members to name a seat in the theatre.  A tax deductible gift of $500 offers the opportunity to have a plaque on a seat.  Refer to for information on naming your seat.
