Armory Free Theatre

The Armory Free Theatre, located on the west side of campus, is the primary site for student driven productions of experimental theatre, original works, interdisciplinary projects, and events not otherwise accommodated by the university. Weekly residencies are intended to give students the freedom to pursue their primary educational research as developing artists dealing with issues of topical relevance and contemporary social concerns. The Armory Free Theatre operates under the auspices of the Department of Theatre at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, which oversees AFT Policy, provides Faculty Support, and supports the Annual Budget. The theatre is a black-box space which seats 80, has an attached dressing room and is equipped with a lighting console, 8 dimmers, PC, DVD player, projector, and a small quadraphonic audio system.
