Performing Arts Plaza

Performing Arts Plaza

This area of campus hosts performances and productions by talented SDSU students at the Don Powell Theatre, Experimental Theatre, and Smith Recital Hall each semester. Students of Theatre, Television and Film have access to scene and costume shops, computer editing equipment, research facilities, and documentary production experience.

Music and dance students benefit from large instrumental and choral rehearsal rooms, an electronic music studio, and multi-media library and labs. Students not majoring in these areas also enjoy music and theatre classes specifically designed for non-majors. Fun fact: Julie Kavner, the voice of Marge Simpson is a graduate of SDSU’s drama department.


The Performing Arts Plaza showcases six plays and musicals, and 100 + music and dance performances throughout the year.
