The majority of our in-house theatre and Cultural Arts Series performances are presented in either the Chalberg Theatre or the Dryden Theatre. Both are located on the Brainerd Campus of Central Lakes College, 501 W College Drive, Brainerd, MN.
The Dryden Theatre is a flexible black-box space that will seat approximately 130. Unless otherwise noted, events presented in the Dryden Theatre are general seating. Because of the intimate nature of this space, once the show has begun, latecomers will not be seated until intermission.
The Chalberg Theatre seats 270. The majority of our events presented in the Chalberg Theatre are reserved seating. Reasonable ADA accommodation requests may be made 24-hours in advance by contacting our box office: 218-855-8199. Assistive hearing devices are available at no additional charge for most performances. These devices are limited and are available on a first come, first served basis. Please make your request 24-hours in advance by contacting our box office: 218-855-8199.
Tornstrom Auditorium seats 906 and is located in the Washington Educational Building (WEB), 804 Oak Street, Brainerd. From time to time, when a larger performance space is needed for an event we present, we will rent Tornstrom Auditorium from ISD181.
