The Theatre Department is housed in the Paul W. Ogle Cultural and Community Center, located on the 177-acre Indiana University Southeast campus in suburban New Albany, Indiana. In addition to benefiting the educational mission of the University, the Center provides facilities for cultural and civic activities for people in Southern Indiana and the entire Greater Louisville region. Along with the performance venues, the Ogle Center contains the Ronald L. Barr Art Gallery, classrooms, practice rooms, teaching studios, an electronic music studio, a music listening/computer instruction lab, a scene design studio, costume shop, and scene shop. Theatre Department performances take place in the Robinson Theater.
The Robinson Theater has a dramatic atmosphere that's unmatched. With its thrust stage, seven-story fly space and hidden trap doors, this space lends itself well to the IU Southeast Theatre Department productions, Opera/Musical Theatre Workshop, and Dance Recitals. The Robinson Theater has 338 seats and three wheelchair locations in a conventional aisle-seating configuration.
