The UA School of Dance, Theatre, and Arts Administration is housed in a state-of-the-art facility that includes seven technology enhanced dance studios, including The Francia Holliday Albrecht Dance Performance Studio and the Carroll Family Studio; administrative and faculty offices for our Dance, Theatre Arts, and Arts Administration programs; scene and costume shops; technology enhanced classrooms including a design lab/studio; and training room, physiotherapy, and locker room facilities.
Diverse performance spaces offer students the possibility to work on their craft. Sandefur Theatre in Guzzetta Hall is a flexible black-box theatre seating up to 125 patrons. Also in Guzzetta Hall is the Varian Theatre, a black-box studio space for classes as well as the performance of experimental plays and intimate work. In Kolbe Hall is the Paul A. Daum Theatre, a 250-seat proscenium space.
The University's E.J. Thomas Performing Arts Hall, the region's flagship performance venue, is adjacent to Guzzetta Hall and the vibrant home of performances by students, faculty, stellar visiting artists, Broadway touring productions, and much more.
UA is also in the development stage of Phase Two of our Guzzetta Hall expansion that will include a new 450-seat theatre supporting music, dance, and theatre performances and productions.
