The Theatre Arts Department at Hiram College has recently moved into their new home in the center of campus, the newly renovated Frohring Performing Arts Hall.

This new location houses the Renner Theater, an intimate and adaptable Black Box performance space, with a computerized lighting system and flexible seating. The building also houses the Lars Fredland Green Room, the "Show Boat," a small lecture/performance venue where play readings and Acting and Directing Scenes will find a home, as well as office space, a costume shop, a small classroom, and space for the building of scenery.

Additional performance spaces are available in Bates Hall, an historic building constructed in 1936, which houses Drury Hall, and Hayden Auditorium. Drury Hall contains a 50-seat rehearsal the­atre and studio classroom, and Hayden Auditorium features a 566-seat proscenium theatre with a flexible thrust stage, a computerized light­ing system, and scenery and costume storage.
