Welcome to the Center for Theatre and Dance!

The new Center for Theatre & Dance is a centralized location for creativity to be cultivated, fostered, and displayed, and provides a new venue for Millikin performing arts to delight, inform, and inspire audiences.

The $29 million project features a 260-seat flexible theatre which includes an orchestra pit, balcony, and tech gallery with a tension wire grid. The new building also features lighting and sound labs, a costume studio, a costume classroom, collaboration spaces, and offices and support facilities for current staff with room for growth.

Located at the former site of the Richards Treat University Center, Millikin’s new Center for Theatre & Dance also incorporates four acting studios, two dance studios, two design classrooms and practice rooms as well as all-new modern theatre equipment and LED lights.
