In 1991 the Dryden Theatre was named in honor of the man who imagined it, Bob Dryden. During his tenure at CLC, Bob proved to be a visionary with a goal to construct a flexible space theatre which could be used for a variety of performances and presentations. The Dryden Theatre offers an intimate space with an extraordinarily up-close experience. Over the past few years the theatre has begun to show its age. Our capital improvement plan will result in a better experience for audience members, including:
New, more comfortable theatre-style seats
Better technical support with the addition of a sound/lighting booth
Improved visibility with new seating risers
Updated curtains, making the space more attractive and acoustically tuned
Once completed, we will be presenting a wider variety of plays in the space, along with a new music series featuring selected professional artists whose talents will be best showcased in the intimate confines of the Dryden Theatre.
