Tri-C boasts a robust schedule of music and theatrical performances year-round, and its theatre facilities on three campuses make the experience rich, both for audiences and performers.
The Black Box at the Gill and Tommy LiPuma Center for Creative Arts on the Metropolitan Campus is a small, flexible environment suited for both live events and recorded productions. Also at Metro: an 800-seat Auditorium and the more intimate Mainstage Theatre, both of which feature sound equipment that can make the most of a quiet stage play or a big-band performance.
A 450-seat theatre at the Western Campus in Parma and a 600-seat theatre at the Eastern Campus in Highland Hills are similarly set up to provide students on both the performance and technical sides of theatre production the experience they’ll need to be successful in their field.
Tours at Metro Campus
Jeffrey Donnelly, Technical Director of the Metro Theatre Department will be taking students, faculty, staff and members of the public on tours through the Metro Main Stage Theatre, Auditorium, Studio Theatre and Scene Shop on the 3rd Wednesday of each month at 2p. The tours will take approximately 45 minutes and include public areas, control booths and back stage. The tour on October 21 should be particularly interesting because the set for the Fall 2015 production of ‘Tartuffe’ will be featured. Tours meet in the lobby of the Metro Auditorium and begin promptly at 2:05p. For more information, please contact Jeffrey Donnelly at 987.4269.
