University of Oklahoma — Elsie C. Brackett Theatre

Rupel J. Jones Fine Arts Center

2015 marked the completion of a multi-million dollar renovation and re-opening of newly dedicated Elsie C. Brackett Theatre. The 570-seat proscenium space, with flexible apron and thrust configurations, accommodates a variety of performing arts, including musicals, opera, ballet, and drama.

Renovations to 40-year-old theatre include new seating and carpeting, repainted wall and ceiling surfaces, as well as the installation of new wall finishes, a new grand curtain, a new air handling unit, and other interior improvements. Lobby restrooms have been refurbished and expanded.

Back-of-house features include stage lifts that have been upgraded to the latest technology; a completely new theatrical lighting system; state-of-the-art sound equipment; and a replacement of the rigging system, including six new motorized hoists.
