Clare Rose Playhouse

Clare Rose Playhouse

An exceptionally beautiful facility, the Clare Rose Playhouse was converted from a former cottage in 1985 through the generosity and guidance of the man for whom it is named.

The playhouse serves as a major teaching facility for the University's theater courses and is a training ground for young actors. Year–round, the stage hosts the production of children's theatre, storytelling, theatre for the deaf and an intimate forum for local playwrights and poets.

The playhouse is the site of community theater productions of musicals, dramas, comedies, cabaret acts, musical performances, dance troupes and comedians.
