RAC Theatre

The main performance space on campus, the RAC Theatre, is a black box theatre located in the Richardson Academic Center. The flexibility of the black box allows RU’s directors, designers, and actors to utilize the space in any set-up that best suits a production, whether it be proscenium, thrust, arena, or something in between.

Associate’s Lab Theatre (ALT)

The Associate’s Lab Theatre (or the ALT for short) is a studio theatre space located in RU’s Campus Center. This theatre, designed to resemble storefront theaters in Chicago and New York, gives actors and audience members a uniquely intimate performance experience.

The Pit

The Pit, our outdoor performance space, is the home of Rochester University and Uncovered Theatre’s professional Shakespeare festival, Shakespeare Upon Avon. Nestled between towering trees near Lake Norcentra and the Clinton River, the Pit provides the perfect backdrop for an outdoor production.
