Memorial stadium renovations ongoing as Purple Masque Theatre moves
The first phase of the Memorial Stadium renovation began Oct. 14 as the Purple Masque Theatre moves from its current home on the east side of the stadium to the west side. The renovation is anticipated to be complete for use by spring semester 2015.
The Purple Masque Theatre, part of the School of Music, Theatre, and Dance, currently used for drama therapy, workshops, playwrights' stage, acting recitals, scene rehearsals, Ebony Theatre performances and final scenes for the Principles of Directing course.
Relocating the theatre will cost approximately $5.6 million, which is coming from university funds. The theatre's relocation will make space for the second part of the renovation, a new university Welcome Center in East Stadium.
