The Harvey M. Powers Theatre was originally constructed in 1959 and dedicated to Harvey M. Powers Junior in 1997. The space boasts some of the best facilities and technology in academic theatre anywhere in the country. The house has 483 seats on two levels. The stage has a 32 foot proscenium and a depth of 27 feet. It has a 50 foot high, 31 line-set fly house and an extensive cat walk system that leads to each of three front-of -house lighting positions. The stage has a Wagnerian orchestra pit, center stage trap and marley flooring for dance performances. Both the stage and the house have been designed for acoustical flexibility using faceted walls and a combination of materials for sound control. Additional technical information, including floor plans and drawings, are available on the Harvey M. Powers Technical Information page.
