Osterhout Concert Theater
An audience of 1170 can be accommodated in the Osterhout Concert Theater, a broad fan-shaped hall with banked rows of comfortable seating and excellent sight lines. A retractable wall at the rear of the auditorium allows the theater to open into an open-air amphitheater during summer months. The large stage can be extended by a lift, which at the lowest level, serves as an orchestra pit for up to 80 musicians. The theater's dynamic design, with curved acoustical clouds mirroring the curvature of the rows of the seats, enhances all occasions taking place on the multi-purpose stage. The Osterhout Concert Theater is equipped with an infra-red hearing assistance system and is handicapped accessible.
The traditionally-designed Chamber Hall, a scaled down copy of the Osterhout Concert Theater, accommodates audiences up to 408. The Chamber Hall's smaller scale lends itself particularly well to lectures and meetings as well as to recitals and plays. The Chamber Hall also is equipped with an infra-red hearing assistance system and is handicapped accessible.
The Watters Theater, located at the East end of the Anderson Center complex, seats 558 guests -- 440 on the main level and 118 in the balcony. The theater's comfortable, spacious seating provides excellent sight lines. Wood-paneled walls help to provide a warm and exciting atmosphere. The Watters Theater is handicapped accessible.
