The Department of Theater and Dance is housed in Bliss Hall, a four-story fine-arts center built in 1976, and recently enlarged and modernized. In addition to department offices, classrooms, studios and conference rooms, it contains complete production and performance facilities to support our theater and dance degree programs, including Ford Theater (our 400 seat proscenium stage), the flexible capacity Spotlight Arena Theater, a lab theater/rehearsal studio, a theater design studio, a film screening room, and a television production studio affiliated with PBS channels 45/49 in Northeastern Ohio.
In addition, Bliss Hall contains our well-equipped scene and costume shops, makeup and dressing rooms, green room, box office, and front-of-house facilities. The Department's spacious dance studio is located in the nearby Beegly Health and Physical Education Center.
Bliss also houses the Department of Art, the Department of Communication and the Nationally-recognized Dana School of Music. In this setting, theater and dance students find themselves in daily contact with a critical mass of creative people, representing virtually all of the fine and performing arts.
