Transylvania University

Lucille C. Little Theater

This technically innovative facility, completed in 1999, provides teaching and performance space for the Transylvania University drama program. The 150-seat theater has movable seating risers that permit a variety of performance and seating configurations, from traditional proscenium-style, thrust, arena, in-the-round and anything in between. The space features include a computerized lighting and sound system, a removable floor section, and a wire rope grid that allows students to safely hang lights and scenery without the use of ladders or lifts.

This flexible studio theater includes storage areas, a scene shop area and tech office, two dressing rooms, a green room, a kitchen, a well-equipped sound and light booth, and a spacious lobby.
