Kirby Memorial Theater

Kirby Theater Kirby Memorial Theater was designed in 1938 by James Kellum Smith of McKim, Mead & White, with the help of S.R. McCandless, a theater designer. Kirby has since been upgraded to a state-of-the-art 384-seat modified proscenium house, with computerized lighting and sound equipment, a stretch-wire lighting grid, and a refurbished fly system. Kirby also houses our scenic and costume shops.  The scene shop is linked to the Holden Theater, easily serving both performing spaces.  Off to the right of the Kirby Theater lobby is Canfield Lounge, where we hold receptions, meetings and small classes. 

Holden Experimental Theater

Built in the late 1990s, Holden Experimental Theater is a 6,000 square-foot, state-of-the-art flexible theater with its own lobby, moveable seating, computer-controlled lighting and sound systems, catwalks, lighting grid, and dressing rooms.
