Performance Place

The School mounts its productions in seven theatres. The largest is the Stevens Center, a renovated, 1,380-seat neoclassical full-fly house with state-of-the-art equipment in downtown Winston-Salem. Operas, plays and dance concerts, as well as orchestra concerts and recitals, are regularly presented in the Stevens Center.

On campus, the specially designed Performance Place houses the 390-seat proscenium thrust, the 200-seat flexible arena theatre, and the flexible space Cobb and Patrons rehearsal/workshop theaters.

Performances at Performance Place are usually limited to plays. The intimate 188-seat Agnes de Mille Theatre offers a proscenium stage for dance concerts and workshops.
