The 55-year-old Little Center/Michelson Theater is undergoing a dramatic transformation, with a design that re-energizes and reimagines Clark’s premiere performance space.
Accessibility for All
The new entrance from Charlotte Street will provide ready access to enhanced accessibility options, including an elevator connecting to second-floor studios, balcony seats, and faculty offices.
Riccardo & Spencer Lobby
Clark Trustee Vickie Riccardo, P ’17, and her husband Don Spencer pledged $2 million toward the creation of the Riccardo & Spencer Lobby, a vibrant space that will also function as an art gallery and intimate performance venue, opening to an outside patio.
Flexible Space for Performances
The Black Box Theater features a flexible seating arrangement. Movable seats and risers will accommodate all types of student performances and productions.
Optimized Viewing Experience
In conjunction with tiered seating, state-of-the-art theatrical lighting and audio systems will ensure there is never a bad seat in the house.
