Reuben P. Jeschke Fine Arts Center
Reuben P. Jeschke Fine Arts Center, established in 1971, includes the Bright Music Hall, Abbott Hall of Art, Meredith Auditorium, and the Jones Studio Theater. The south wall of the lobby is made of Sioux quartzite from the original Meredith Hall (the first building on the campus) erected in 1883-85. Jeschke Fine Arts Center houses studios, rehearsal areas for art, music and theatre studies, a nursing lab and classrooms.
Meredith Auditorium is the site of numerous theatrical productions and music events. Each year the Theatre Department entertains audiences with mainstage productions that range from Shakespearian tragedies to large-scale musicals to contemporary comedies. The space boasts a house of approximately 800 seats. Finally, Meredith Auditorium is the hub of many campus activities sponsored by the USF Student Life Office.
Jones Studio Theater
Jones Studio Theater is a 70-seat black box space located in the lower level of Jeschke Fine Arts Center. It not only serves as a wonderful working classroom for many of the Theatre Studies classes, but it also is an exciting space for more experimental and student showcases.
