  • Whitesides Hall houses faculty offices, as well as The Acting Lab, Sound Lab, and Design Lab
  • The Acting Lab (for acting classes and the rehearsal space)
  • The Design Lab in Whitesides Hall contains drafting tables and 10 computer stations that contain lighting, graphic, sound, scenic and costuming software.

TheatreUNCA’s Honor Library

Are you in need of a script or book to help with your class?  Or perhaps you’d like to explore a playwright you’ve never heard of, or a read more from one you enjoyed. Explore the selection, sign some out and it’s on your honor to bring them back. There’s also the Legacy Library which consists of scripts some of our graduates have chosen to leave behind for those who follow. These plays spoke these students and they felt strongly enough to leave them for future students. They’ve even added some encouraging words for future students. Come see what’s available in TheatreUNCA’s library; talk to Laura in Whitesides 215 if you’re interested in checking out items.
