The Kim Christison Theatre
Theater Facilities Theater Facilities

Located in Snow College's Eccles Center for the Performing Arts the Kim Christison Theatre is our primary space for main stage productions. This welcoming 34'-wide proscenium gives student performers, designers, and technicians the chance to work on a professional-scale stage; learning the demands of a large house (550 seats), a deep backstage, dozens of fly rails, and incorporated trap, and a hydraulically operated pit. From our very first production in the space, Peter Pan, to those just on the horizon, The Snow College theatre department has always endeavored to use this beautiful venue to its utmost.

Because our philosophy is built upon the importance of the practical application of theatrical skills, students will find themselves upon this stage early and often, wearing many different hats: actors, scenic painters, build and run crews, stage management, light crew, designers and directors. It serves as the heartbeat of our program, and as such, we maintain its relevance and technology vigilantly. We promise you, you will set foot on this stage and craft magic within your first few weeks at Snow.

Wheelchair seating is available in the front rows, with access from the lobby.

The Haslam Blackbox Theatre

 

Theater Facilities

Found in the Snow College's Eccles Center for the Performing Arts, our flexible blackbox space adjusts to our program's needs. Highly adaptable, our second theatre, plays host to student-directed work, is home to our improv troupe, and serves as a working classroom for many of our courses. When the need arrises, it also acts as a venue for smaller, more intimate plays in our Mainstage season. It is a excellent counterpoint to the Kim Christison Theatre, giving students a hands on appreciation of the range of theatre that may be found. With versatile seating and a 36’x48’ open floor plan, The Haslam is the ideal venue for non-traditional and new works staging configurations.

Wheelchair seating is available in the front rows, with access from the lobby.
