In 2023, the Theatre Company officially merged with the TCOE Planetarium and Science Center to form a single department. Together, we go by the name "Stage and Space Collaborative." While our partnership might seem unusual, our shared needs for theatrical spaces, public audiences, and projection and sound technology means we have a lot of overlap. We are also excited to find even more ways to engage students through innovative storytelling.
