Lewis Arts complex

Tilghman Theater Studio

Tilghman Studio, an asymmetrical space with a curved wall on one side and a tiered ceiling, is designed to support small acting classes and workshops, and occasionally for small performances. There is a system of pipe hangers and strong points for temporary overhead rigging of theatrical equipment. It is equipped with Harlequin WoodSpring basketweave sprung floor with Harlequin Vinyl Marley flooring and a Boston Upright Piano. Non-marring flat-soled shoes must be worn; no work boots or high-heeled shoes allowed.

Tilghman Theater Studio is located on the second floor of the Wallace Dance Building. From the Forum, take the Wallace elevator or “dancing” staircase to the second floor. Exit the elevator or stairs, pass the lounge area with carpeting, couches and tables, and take the hallway to the right. The door to Tilghman Studio is straight ahead at the end of this hallway.

From the Arts Tower, take the elevator or stairs to the second floor. Follow the long, gently sloping ramp down the hallway past Drapkin and Godfrey Kerr studios, and the entrance to Tilghman Theater Studio is on the right.


There are two good choices to access the Tilghman Theater Studio. Use the Forum level entrance on Theater Drive across from the train station where the entrance is ramp accessible. Take the Wallace Elevator in the Forum up to level 2, exit the elevator and travel up a gently sloping ramp on your right. The Tilghman Studio entrance is directly in front of you at the end of the hallway.

A second entry choice would be to enter the building from the Arts Plaza level entrance by the Roth Box Office and take the Arts Tower elevator up 1 floor to the second level. Exit the elevator to your left and travel down a gently sloping ramp to the open landing. Pass through the lounge space near Ellie’s Studio, travel down a gently sloping ramp, pass both entry doors to the Godfrey Kerr Studio on your right, and the Tilghman Studio door is the last door on the right at the end of the hallway.
