“The facilities also feature several other rehearsal and smaller theatres to allow for various performers,” it continues. “The performance room is typically suitable for orchestras because of its high-end sound technology and features 300 seats.”

The CFA opened in the fall of 2006 and houses the 450-seat Thompson Theatre; the black-box Studio Theatre, which seats up to 150; the 200-seat Gore Recital Hall; and the Puglisi Orchestra Hall, which seats up to 300, and 32 individual music practice rooms and instrument storage lockers for student use. 

It is the focal point of UD’s performance arts community and serves as the main venue for artists and performers in the Department of Music, as well as the University’s theatre company, the Resident Ensemble Players
