Several groups use the SIU-E venues offering performances during the year. Cougar Theater Company performs children’s shows in the Metcalf Theater; Curtain’s Up and Summer Showbiz offer shows annually in the Dunham Hall Theater, which seats 400.
This 3,000 seat venue, home to the track & field and soccer programs, is fully lighted and has a separate throwing area for field events. It features locker rooms, training facilities and a press box.
Opened in 1909 as an opera house and a meeting hall for the Independent Order of Oddfellows, the Wildey has undergone many transformations through the years. It is now a premier facility for live performances and classic films.
