Westhoff Theatre

Location:
Westhoff Theatre 401 S. School Street
Normal, IL

Westoff Theater was formerly a proscenium stage, but was renovated in 2002 to create an intimate 175 seat performance space. Seating can be configured to allow for thrust or arena staging. Stage size and shape is approximate to Chicago storefront theatres, serving as a model for our students, many of whom pursue postgraduate careers in Chicago.

The Westhoff Experimental Theatre hosts four SecondStage and two MainStage shows every year.
