Just the performance space itself boasts computerized lighting control and sound systems maintained from both an overhead and ground-floor booth, a full size orchestra pit, and seats for 515 patrons. Backstage, one can find a massive fly space, four props and scenery decks, two 25-mirror dressing rooms, a green room, an electrics shop, and costume storage. Theatre majors put what they learn in performance and technical theatre classes into practice onstage and backstage in up to six major productions per year. Classes are often taught in the FRT itself! Click on the links below to get a feel for our space.
