JAMES DUNN THEATRE
The 585-seat James Dunn Theatre hosts the majority of department concerts, as well as fully staged plays and musicals and dance recitals. In addition to large ensemble performances, the theatre is also equipped with a PA system for amplified shows, as well as professional lighting.
The Studio Theatre is an intimate 90-seat black box stage. Serving as both a production/rehearsal space and a classroom, the Studio Theatre is flexible enough to serve a variety of functions. The moveable audience platforms give designers and directors flexibility in staging a play , while the extra wide, cushioned seats allow for viewing comfort. A Proscenium arrangement reduces the audience capacity to approximately 65, whereas the Arena setting can comfortably accommodate 90 guests. Studio Theatre productions are an important part of the Drama Program’s subscription season as well as an important venue for Drama Club shows and events.
LEFORT RECITAL HALL
The 100-seat Warren Lefort Recital Hall offers a more intimate concert experience for voice, chamber music, and other small ensembles. It is equipped with a state-of-the-art audio-visual system and houses one of our 9' Steinway Concert Grand pianos.
JOHN H. MYERS REHEARSAL HALL
Our large ensemble room, better known as the the band room, houses the orchestra, symphonic band, jazz ensemble, and other large groups during the year. It features a full percussion battery plus timpani and mallet percussion, a grand piano, and a full AV system.
The College of Marin Dance Department has two new, state-of-the-art dance studios which were completed in January, 2013. There is one small and one large studio, and both are located on the first floor of the Performing Arts Building on our Kentfield Campus. Both studios feature large windows, new sound systems, a full wall of mirrors, Ballet Barres, and state-of-the-art sprung floors.
The large studio is a smart classroom with wireless internet capability and a special projection system. The smaller studio features a 60-inch flat screen monitor so students can review and critique performances.
