Located right on campus, the Baker Theatre Building holds over 20 classrooms, six acting studios, a computer lab, sound design room, screening room, and a library with thousands of scripts and books on theatre.

The Baker Theatre Building is open Mondays-Fridays 8am-10:30pm. If you would like to have the building open on a weekend, click here to submit a request.

Frederick Loewe Theatre

The Frederick Loewe Theatre is a 50' x 54' black box performance space where most of the Theatre Department's productions are rehearsed, built, and staged. Located on the first floor of the landmark building named for Thomas Hunter, it was beautifully renovated in 1998 and is extremely flexible and intimate.

 

 

Marvin Seiger Theatre Library

The Marvin Seiger Theatre Library is located in the basement of the Baker Theatre Building.

Our collection contains playscripts, critical essays, anthologies, and more. Thanks to a generous donation, in 2014 we added 1500 volumes from the library of theatre and film critic Stanley Kauffmann.

The library also converts into a performance space for student-generated-work. Past student productions have included: staged readings, playwriting festivals, cabarets, and workshops.

Space Requests & Open Door Policy

The Baker Theatre Building has an open door policy. As long as there is no class or rehearsal scheduled, theatre majors and minors are welcome to use any of the classrooms to rehearse, study, finish homework, or just relax.

 

Please note that priority is given to students who need to rehearse for theater courses. During midterms and finals season, the rooms can get crowded, and you may be asked to leave if you're not rehearsing.

Food and drinks are not permitted in classrooms, acting studios, labs, the screening room or the library. If you are found eating, security will ask you to relocate to our designated eating areas: the first floor student lounge and kitchen area. Infractions will be taken seriously.

Reserve a Room​

If you would like to reserve a specific room for rehearsals or a performance, submit a request below.

Who Can Submit

  • Theatre Majors & Minors

  • Theatre Faculty & Staff

  • Theatre Alumni - We give priority to current students and faculty, so we recommend that alumni make requests during the winter and summer sessions, as space is limited during the school year.

Reservation Policy

  • Include specific dates and times for your request. We will not be able to make reservations without that information.

  • Students can request a space for up to 3 hours. If this is for a student production, you may request more time.

  • Submit at least 48 hours in advance of when you would like to reserve the space.

  • No food or drinks allowed in any rehearsal spaces

  • After you are done, reset the room as you found it

  • If you have non-hunter students attending your rehearsals, they will need to be approved by the department in order to get them on the security list. Be sure to include that in your submission.

  • If you submit for a performance space, we will need to confirm with our head of production before we can reserve the space for you.

  • Alumni who would like to request an ongoing rehearsal space (any request for more than two days) will need to fill out an occupancy agreement and submit a $500 damage deposit.
