The Irene and Alan Wurtzel Theater is an accessible and highly adaptable performance space that can accommodate up to 300 seats. Production staff can arrange seats around the stage, offering opportunities for a variety of productions. A new box office has been added to increase visibility and ease of buying tickets.

This medium-sized theater is the third performance space for Oberlin’s dance, theater, and vocal studies programs. Faculty and students alike will be able to present student-produced, experimental, and small- and full-scale plays and operas.

Wurtzel Theater is located within the Eric Baker Nord Performing Arts Annex that connects Hall Auditorium and Hall Annex, home of Kander Theater.

The facility was made possible through the generosity of Irene and Alan Wurtzel ’55.
