PLU’s Theatre & Dance Department fully supports student productions and student organizations as a means for professional growth, artistic experimentation and leadership. Unlike some colleges that only allow student productions in small theaters with limited budgets, our Theatre & Dance student organizations have access to an array of performance spaces, from the intimate Cave in the student union, to our flexible 150-seat Studio Theatre, and even our 600-seat Eastvold mainstage!
