Purple Masque Theatre
Nestled within the iconic limestone exterior of Memorial Stadium is the new home of the Purple Masque Theatre. After making a move from the east side of the stadium to the west side, the Purple Masque brings its historic purpose dating back to 1974 into a state of the art new facility. The Theatre provides an expanded space for experimental theatre and student learning (through showcases, workshops, stage readings, Ebony Theatre productions, and more).
Stage 46'-3" wide x 14'-11" deep
Catwalk system, new AV system (2016), electrical pathways under deck, bi-parting main curtain.
Space is used primarily for second stage productions, but occasionally used for Mainstage. Space is also used for directing scenes and various lecture courses.
