In January 2002, IU opened the Lee Norvelle Theatre and Drama Center on the Bloomington campus, adjacent to the old Theatre Building. The building is beautifully designed, and provides state-of-the-art technology, expansive and well-planned workshops, spacious directing and acting studios, and two vital, new performance spaces.
The second phase of the Norvelle Center opened in June 2011. The remodeling and renovation of the Theatre Building, which is adjacent to the new center opened in progressive stages. In June 2011 the completion of the final phase allowed the department to fully connect both spaces complete with new classrooms, studios and offices. The new studio theatre and movement studio are the centerpieces of this newest renovation to the facility.
To the right are links that describe the classrooms, studios, theatres, and offices of the Department of Theatre, Drama, and Contemporary Dance and the Lee Norvelle Theatre and Drama Center. If you are interested in the layout of the facility, the map of the Center will provide you with a walking tour of the building.
