On-Campus Theater and Performance Spaces
The CalArts School of Theater’s main performance space is the Walt Disney Modular Theater, one of the most unique stages in the world. A vast black box, this facility’s variable architecture supports an unlimited range of stage and seating configurations. It can be used as an arena stage, a proscenium, thrust, or oriented in any number of unconventional configurations.
The School of Theater also features two additional black box spaces, a “cabaret style” performance space, as well as a multi-use studio/performance space. These venues are used for student productions, guest artist residencies, workshops, curricular studio work, as well as hands on technical training for all School of Theater métiers.
Students also collaborate on projects in CalArts’ other schools and performance spaces: The Sharon Disney Lund Dance Theater, The Wild Beast, the Roy O. Disney Music Hall, the Main Gallery, various other studios and sound stages, and an assortment of non-traditional venues.
