State-of-the-Art Facilities

To support our work, we have two hi-tech facilities: the recently renovated Cunningham Theatre Center which houses our classes, The Barber Theatre, design facilities, and administrative offices, and Duke Family Performance Hall for our Mainstage productions.

Duke Family Performance Hall

Our two Mainstage productions are conducted in the 600+ seat proscenium theatre that is housed within the Knobloch Campus Center. As one of the region's finest performance venues, the Duke Family Performance Hall has quickly become a popular cultural resource for the Charlotte Metro area.

Cunningham Theatre Center

Cunningham is the heart of theatre at Davidson. The recent $6.8 million transformation of Cunningham features:
