THE JAMES T. BILL THEATER

"To enter a theater for a performance is to be inducted into a magical space,
to be ushered into the sacred arena of the imagination."
- Simon Callow -

Built in 2000, the James T. Bill Theater seats an audience of 325, and has been the home for O’Dowd’s long-standing musical theater tradition, with performances of Ragtime, Cabaret, Chicago, and more recently Shaina Taub’s musical adaptation of Shakespeare’s As You Like It. Equipped with all the technical capabilities of a professional performance house, the James T. Bill Theater also offers students the opportunity to master behind-the-scenes production skills, including lighting, sound, costumes, props, make-up, and stage management.

“Hey somebody, don’t you wanna hear the story of my life!”

 

Based on Studs Terkel’s best-selling book of interviews with American workers, Working paints a vivid portrait of the workers that the world often takes for granted. Nominated for six Tony Awards, this classic has been updated for a modern age, featuring new songs by Tony Award-winning Lin-Manuel Miranda, as well as favorites by Stephen Schwartz, Craig Carnelia, James Taylor, Micki Grant, and more!
