The main performing spaces and classrooms used by the Department of Theater are in the Eugene and Theresa Lang Performing Arts Center (LPAC), which opened in January 1991. The LPAC spaces include the Pearson-Hall Theatre, the largest performing stage on campus, the Frear Ensemble Theatre, the smaller 'black box' theater, the Troy Dance Lab, the large dance studio mainly used for dance classes, and the Boyer Dance Studio, the smaller of the two dance studios. In addition to the LPAC, students often participate on productions in many other sites on campus including Lang Music Center, Olde Club, and Upper Tarble-in-Clothier.  The Matchbox is also a recent addition on the south end of campus which offers a rehearsal and classroom space for the department.

The LPAC also houses a number of academic and administrative departments, as well as the List Gallery, which regularly sponsors both contemporary and historical exhibitions by both emerging and nationally-known artists that complement and strengthen the studio art and art history curriculum.
