BLAST FROM THE PAST


Loyola’s Mullady Theatre, which has been the Lake Shore Campus showcase for the performing arts since 1968, is closing this spring.


The lights go down on Mullady Theatre


After over 40 years in Mullady Theatre, the theatre


department’s productions will be moving on to make new memories. The department is currently constructing a new theatre space, which will open later this year in Mun- delein Center for the Fine and Performing Arts. Built in 1968 (the same year that the Department of


Theatre was established at Loyola), the 297-seat theatre has seen a wide variety of dramatic, musical, and dance performances. But we suspect that it isn’t the perfor- mances that form the most cherished memories—it’s the countless hours of rehearsal logged onstage, scenery production, lights, and costume design backstage. Join us for the dedication of the new theatre in Munde- lein Center during Homecoming, October 12–14.
