Alexander Kasser Theater
The Alexander Kasser Theater is the University's newest, flagship performance facility. Intimate, convenient, and with excellent acoustics, Kasser is an exciting venue for both performers and audiences. In its architecture, the 53,000 square foot theater pays tribute to the Spanish mission style of the University's historic buildings, welcoming visitors with a sweeping plaza and broad, arcaded loggia. Once inside, theater-goers enter a 4,600 square foot lobby, distinguished by an elegant staircase to the balcony. While awaiting curtain time, patrons can visit the lobby's gallery space, enjoy exhibition displays and gather for casual conversation.
The heart of the Kasser is its intimate 500-seat auditorium, including an oversized stage, orchestra pit, and state-of-the-art technical features. Equipped to exacting standards, Kasser includes a guest artist suite, green room, scenery/props construction shop, makeup room, electric shop, wardrobe room and control room. The theater is also home to the unique Harry Partch Institute and a Recording Studio.
