Where We Are




Stewart Theatre is closed while the renovation of Talley Student Center is completed. Watch for the grand re-opening in early 2015. Stewart Theatre is accepting reservation requests starting with Spring Commencements on May 8th and 9th, 2015. Construction on the new Talley Student Union is scheduled to be finished at that time and University Theatre crews will be re-fitting Stewart for two months prior to the close of the semester. Its use and any reservations will be subject to change or cancellation if the Talley construction deadlines should not continue on schedule. Contact RAVE Event Services at 919-51 EVENT (919-513-8368) for reservation information.

Frank Thompson Hall completed an extensive renovation in 2009. It is the home of The Crafts Center on the lower level, and University Theatre on the upper level. The Crafts Center has studios, classrooms and exhibition space for the many arts and crafts taught by the staff at the center and visiting artists and craftspersons.


The upper level of the building houses the Titmus Theatre which seats 192 and the Kennedy-McIlwee Studio Theatre which seats 102. (see seating charts below) The first floor includes teaching space, scene shop, costume shop, dressing rooms, a green room and offices. The theatres are primarily used by University Theatre for student productions and a summer theatre. During the renovation of the Talley Student Center, many activities of Center Stage, Dance, and the Music Department will take place in the Thompson Hall theatres. Other activities are scheduled in the facility as space permits. More information on Thompson Hall and booking for an event>


NOTICE ON THE IMPACT OF TALLEY RENOVATION: The NC State community is very excited about the renovation and expansion of the Talley Student Center now in progress. Unfortunately, this construction will affect the operations of the Stewart Theatre located in Talley, beginning in January 2013. Stewart Theatre will temporarily cease operations at that time, resuming when Talley reopens. Construction activities around the theatre require that we dismantle and store most of the lighting and sound fixtures and equipment for storage during the construction period to prevent damage and allow access to the facility. Additionally, we carefully considered the levels of construction noise and disruption, access and safety of those who would use the theatre in timing our closing.

Stewart Theatre is unique on the campus and we know this will affect many organizations that currently schedule events in the facility.


Please watch the Talley construction updates for the exact time of our reopening. As soon as we know when we will again be able to book the theatre, we will notify the campus and open for reservations.

Thank you for your continued patience during the renovation and expansion. If you have questions or concerns please email us at universitytheatre@ncsu.edu or call us at 919-515-3927.
