Built in 1967, Taylor Theatre is a 450-seat proscenium space with a proscenium 18 feet high and with an adjustable width ranging from 35 to 58 feet. The theatre includes an orchestra pit capable of accommodating 25 musicians and a fly and rigging system. The house features continental seating (no center aisle, with long, crescent-shaped rows allowing intimate viewing opportunities from all areas despite the theatre’s size). A hallway near the makeup room connects Taylor to the basement level of UNCG Auditorium, which has some storage space for department lighting equipment. The fall North Carolina Theatre for Young People production is staged in Taylor, as is at least one play during the spring semester – and frequently the department’s collaboration on a fully-staged opera with the Music Performance area. Taylor Theatre is handicapped accessible with a newly installed (2009) external wheelchair lift and also features hearing-assistance listening devices.
Parking is available in unreserved spaces in the Tate Street Parking Lot between Spring Garden and Lee Streets. Please do not park in spaces reserved for the Weatherspoon Art Museum. For weekday, daytime shows, parking is also available off of Tate Street and surrounding streets.
