HATTIESBURG — William Carey University (WCU) will break ground for a new theatre June 5 at 10 a.m. on the Hattiesburg campus. The new black box theatre will replace the current one located on the first floor of Tatum Court.
The private university, which is also planning to build a new College of Osteopathic Medicine on its Hattiesburg campus, said a “very significant” lead gift initiated a campaign to raise the funds for this project, and many additional gifts have been received to make it possible.
The new theatre will be located on the west end of the Quad near Thomas Business Building. Designed by Landry and Lewis Architects, the new theatre will be constructed by HANCO Inc. It will feature larger audience capacity and taller ceilings for additional set design options.
