The St. Scholastica TheatreSt. Scholastica Theatre

The CSS Theatre has the charm of being one of the older buildings on campus. The former gymnasium has been renovated to an intimate 100 seat theatre space, but if you look up you can still see some of the supports that held the basketball hoops. The theatre is flexible in its ability to accommodate proscenium, thrust and arena formations for great creative flexibility in the design process. An almost entirely student-run program, the theatre offers multiple work-study and practicum opportunities for all students, from the casually interested to the theatre geek. The St. Scholastica Theatre is located directly behind Tower Hall.

However, it is also a marvelous setting for an evening group travel lecture, or a television media event.
