DeWitt Theatre Arts Center
The DeWitt Theatre Arts Center includes two performance areas of equal excellence:
- Theora England Willcox Theatre (proscenium-style, seats 196)
- R. Keith Allen Theatre (black box, seats up to 250)
Both theatres are equipped with high-tech acoustical, lighting and mechanical systems. The DeWitt Center also includes a scene shop, costume shop, makeup and dressing rooms, a green room, faculty and staff offices, classrooms, a design studio, a box office, and spacious lobby that is also used for other arts events as well as studying and socializing. Opened in 2004, the building has won three architectural awards. After visiting, the executive director of the Iowa High School Speech Association said it’s the best college theatre facility in Iowa.
