Plans to move forward with construction of the Walgreen Drama Center
and Arthur Miller Theatre on North Campus have been approved by the
Board of Regents.
The facility will house the departments of theatre and drama, and musical
theatre, and will establish a destination site on North Campus. It
will comprise a 250-seat theater named to honor Miller, the Pulitzer
Prize-winning alumnus, and will include rehearsal rooms, specialized
studios, and classrooms designed for teaching and rehearsing specific
skills such as voice, acting for the camera, and design of scenery,
lighting and costumes. The building will include faculty offices.
