NMU’s Forest Roberts Theatre
Welcome to the Forest Roberts Theatre on the campus of Northern Michigan University in Marquette, MI.
The Forest Roberts Theatre has been described as one of the finest university theatres in the country. It accommodates 514 people in a continental seating arrangement with and has its own scene, costume, and electrics shops as well as state of the art make-up and costume facilities and dressing rooms.
The theatre puts on four mainstage productions each season, along with an annual Haunted House experience, and a full studio theatre season. The Forest Roberts Theatre also hosts a bi-annual playwriting contest.
Theatre majors and non-majors alike, along with NMU faculty and staff and Marquette area community members, have graced the Forest Roberts Theatre stage over the decades. The NMU theatre faculty and staff take great pride in the success of the many alumni who have gone on to perform professionally on stage and in television and broadcasting.
Great opportunities for students of all ages are at the Forest Roberts Theatre, and this year we're excited to see what we can create together!
