The Studio Theatre is located on the second floor of the new wing and is a multi-use facility.


The Studio Theatre may be rented for a wide variety of performance and event activities. Rates vary depending on daily vs. weekly use, rehearsal vs. performance use and private organizations vs. not-for-profit organizations.


Rental does not include Box Office fee, technical labor, piano tuning, or special equipment.


Thalian Hall provides ushers, front of house, and concessionaires.



In keeping with the multi-use concept, seating in the Studio Theatre is flexible. Maximum fire code capacity is 100 seats. In order to fit this many people into the Studio Theatre, there can be no set. Normal capacity for theatrical presentations is between 60 and 100 seats. Thalian Hall Center staff will add seating platforms and chairs after the performance space has been defined.


Ticket sales are capped at 60 until the Technical Director has approved an increase in the capacity.
