Performing Arts

The performing arts are integral to a Stritch education, and the University's performance schedule aims to entertain the entire community.


Our talented theater students present four productions a year, from musicals to the classics.

Most performances take place in the Joan Steele Stein Center for Communication Studies/Fine Arts, which includes the lovely 400-seat Nancy Kendall Theater that is accessible to people with disabilities and has assisted-listening equipment for the hearing-impaired. On-campus parking is plentiful, well-lighted, and free.


Musical performances, including recitals, concerts, and musicales, are offered throughout the year in an array of musical genres. Performances take place in the Nancy Kendall Theater, located in the Stein Center; and Schroeder Auditorium, which is located in the Great Hall.
