BEXLEY, Ohio, March 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- College Rank, a website dedicated to evaluating and ranking college programs and experiences, has released a list of the Best 25 College Theaters.
The full list can be viewed here: http://www.collegerank.net/best-college-theaters/
A live poetry reading, a concert, a fantastic ballet; these artful moments stay with you forever. The extraordinary impact the of the arts has the ability to shape a generation. From cultivating expressiveness and creativity to nourishing your soul, these are often the moments that help build who we are. And where do they happen? At the theater.
Our team has worked to research and evaluate these 25 amazing facilities. While these programs are developing the next great generation of composers, Tony-award winners, and authors, they are also wowing theatergoers around the country.
"College Theater is a unique experience. It enables students to participate in various forms of drama, evokes community support and develops a passion for the arts as a whole. Colleges around the country, big and small pour their heart and soul into their programming," says Monica Dennis from the College Rank team. "Whether a student takes their final bow on the stage of their alma mater or goes on to accept an Academy Award, the collegiate experience remains alive in their memories. We've taken a deep dive into theaters around the country. We're evaluating the best of the best and ranking them in one place."
While compiling this ranking, our team looked at seating capacity, architecture, and of course programming to determine our list. From historic gems to theaters meeting new LEED standards, we took it all into consideration. These theaters are more than buildings, they are the home of hours of rehearsals, stage crews, directors and musicians. They are the hub of the experience and add a layer to the experience of live performance we all know and love. We're excited and proud to reveal our 25 Best College Theaters.
