Simpkins Theatre

Simpkins Theatre is located in Simpkins Hall, the English Department building, and is the workhorse theatre of our department. Minimally, ten to twelve Studio productions are presented each year in this theatre.

Converted from a 1930's proscenium theatre, Simpkins Theatre is an intimate and flexible space that changes from proscenium to thrust to arena. Seating capacity varies accordingly but ranges from 100 to 138 seats. The theatre is equipped with 96 ETC Sensor dimmers and ETC control.
