Mary Gray Munroe Theater
605 Asbury Circle NE
Dobbs University Center
Atlanta, GA 30322
The Mary Gray Munroe Theater, a 100-to-200-seat black-box studio in the Dobbs University Center, was dedicated in 1988 and remains Theater Emory's production home. In 1990 the theater began operating a costume shop. A renovation of the Burlington Road Building in 1996 provided theater with a small black box space for classes and small theater projects.
Theater Emory is Emory's resident professional theater company. It serves as a laboratory for faculty artistic research as well as for Theater Studies courses. This unusual partnering of undergraduates with adventurous professional artists in residence creates distinctive opportunities: to link theory and practice; to let mature artists and gifted students inspire each other; and to make theater that asks substantial questions about the world.
