Theatre Facilities

The 740-seat Corbett Auditorium has undergone a five-million dollar renovation - the result is one of the most visually striking and acoustically balanced college theatres in the nation. Corbett Auditorium is very well equipped with a 54'-0" proscenium, hydraulic lift, dimmer-per-circuit lighting and extensive sound and video circuiting.

Corbett Auditorium won the prestigious 1997 USITT Meritorious Achievement Award for Outstanding New Theatre.

Corbett Auditorium is home to our orchestral, jazz, and vocal ensembles, as well as one Opera and one Musical per year. No dramas are performed in this facility.


The 400-seat Patricia Corbett Theater features a modified-thrust stage with a 42'-0" proscenium opening. The Theater recently underwent an extensive half-million dollar lighting system renovation. Designed by Ming Cho Lee - this theater has a Bayreuth style pit and steeply raked intimate seating.

CCM Acting presents two Mainstage productions per year in this facility.


The Cohen Family Studio Theater is a one-of-a-kind flexible space. This venue incorporates a unique architectural 'apse' within the outer structure of a more traditional large black-box with a multitude of staging possibilities through the use of modular seating. The theater, with flexible seating for approximately 150, serves as the home for CCM's workshop series and laboratory productions.

CCM Acting produces two Studio Series productions per year in this facility.


The 300-seat Werner Recital Hall serves as a performance and rehearsal space for chamber music, ensemble and recital performances. This intimate, comfortable hall supports activities at CCM ranging from faculty artist and student recitals to appearances by distinguished visiting artists and ensembles.


The CCM Village
In 1999 CCM celebrated the $93.2 million, completion of its "campus village" a collection of renovated and new buildings that has significantly enhanced teaching and performance capabilities. The new complex stresses the synergy between the performing arts and electronic media and effectively accommodates CCM's vast performance calendar.

(CCM Acting 2013)

Will has settled in Chicago, IL where he is a proud Jackalope Theatre Company member and manager/curator of their store-front theatre space The Frontier. Jackalope was recently voted "top up and coming theatre company" by Time-Out Chicago and their most recent production Exit Strategy was heralded by the Chicago Tribune as an "overall experience comparable to those famously seminal moments of Chicago theater — early Steppenwolf Theatre productions, say, or the Remains Theatre beginnings, or the Goodman Theatre's Stage 2, or David Mamet's work for the St. Nicholas Players." While in Chicago he has also worked with Raven Theatre, Northlight, Next, Buzz 22 and Collaboraction. This summer, Will will return to Northwestern University as a member of the National High School Institutes' acting faculty before traveling to Edinburgh Scotland for the International Fringe Festival.
