This former proscenium stage was renovated in 2002 to create an intimate 175 seat performance space. Seating can be configured to allow for thrust or arena staging. Stage size and shape is approximate to Chicago storefront theatres, serving as a model for our students, many of whom pursue post graduate careers in Chicago. The Westhoff Experimental Theatre hosts four SecondStage and two MainStage shows every year.
The Westhoff Theatre is located in Centennial East, which is at the south end of the quad off of W. Beaufort St.
