For more than thirty years, the McCoy Theatre has been the production arm of the Department of Theatre.
The department′s efforts to understand theatrical performance find application in this large, black box space. The McCoy′s seasons seek to investigate the human condition, broadly, and aim to engage with the college′s liberal arts curriculum. In this respect, the McCoy looks not only to test and to try what theatrical performance does, but looks to collaborate with the campus′s various programs of study.
In addition to staging everything from Sophocles to Jarry to Beckett to Vogel, the McCoy space has hosted professional performers from New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, and from as far away as England and India.
In 2006, the department added a second black box space, nearly the size of the McCoy Theatre, which functions as a studio, lecture hall, rehearsal space, and theatre for ad hoc performances. The expansion of the building also gave the department a new smart classroom and costume shop.
We use these spaces. We overuse these spaces.
And, in case you were wondering: Yes. We rock.
