Tours of the Theatre Program

The Maggie Allesee Department of Theatre and Dance is pleased to offer tours of our facilities to students interested in pursuing studies in Theatre or Dance.  This walking tour exposes students to all aspects of the theatre and dance program.

All tours take place on Friday afternoons from 4 p.m. - 6 p.m. so students do not have to worry about missing school.  Following each tour, students and their families are invited to stay and see one of more than 21 productions that the Maggie Allesee Department of Theatre and Dance produces each year.

On the tour we will walk through rehearsal rooms, classrooms, performance venues, lighting labs and the production center where we build the costumes and sets that you see on stage.  We will also tour the Main Campus and learn about many of Wayne State University's campus life amenities.  Students and parents will also have a chance to meet with the Theatre/Dance Academic Advisor who can answer any cirriculum questions that you may have.

Please wear comfortable shoes. Family members are welcome.

Please meet at the Theatre and Dance Management Office located on the third floor of Old Main, 4841 Cass Avenue (the clock tower building), Suite 3207. Use the campus map and allow plenty of time to park. The nearest parking is in Structure 6 and Lot 60.  Please refer to Visitor Parking for payment information.
