Los Angeles, California, United States
Designed for versatility
Located on a central green of the Loyola Marymount University campus, the Drollinger Family Stage is designed as a multipurpose venue that can be used for performances, events, and classes. With a minimal design and flexible curtain system, the stage can be easily adapted to any of the traditional theatrical configurations: in-the-round, proscenium, or thrust-stage. The space can also be fully enclosed for private classes and rehearsals.
Though the stage was commissioned by the university’s College of Communication and Fine Arts (CFA), it is intended to be a versatile space for the entire community. It has been engaged as a podium for civic announcements, a platform for student fitness classes, and a venue for myriad campus activities. An inaugural event on the stage was the 2022 Kente Graduation Celebration for students of African descent. The CFA’s annual Shakespeare on the Bluff event finds its permanent home on the Drollinger Family Stage. When not engaged for performances, classes, or ceremonies, it becomes an informal student gathering space.
