Agnes de Mille Theatre

One of the oldest on-campus venues, the theatre was originally the Gray High School gymnasium. In 1974 a major renovation converted the gymnasium into a performance facility. The Agnes de Mille Theatre was dedicated on February 7, 1975. The dedication featured Miss Agnes de Mille re-staging her ballet, "Three Virgins and a Devil."

In 2007 the de Mille Theatre was closed for renovation. The auditorium interior and inner lobby were renovated and state-of-the-art theatrical lighting control systems and sound systems were installed in the venue.
