- Theatre Capacity 350
The building's main performance space is a Recital Hall that seats 460 with impressive acoustic isolation. The highlight of the Recital Hall is the Casavant Organ. This space is used for classes, rehearsals, and over 200 performances each year. In addition, there are two large rehearsal spaces with tiered seating as well as various classrooms which are well-equipped for any class needs. The Recital Hall, rehearsal spaces, and classrooms in the Strauss Performing Arts Center are available for rental to groups within and outside the University. Reservations for outside events are available on a first-come/first-served basis, and UNO School of Music events have priority over outside events. Renters are required to complete an application and contract process, which must be approved and finalized by University administration before reservations are confirmed. In addition, UNO requires renters to provide a certificate of insurance with limits of $1,000,000 per occurrence and $3,000,000 general aggregate, naming the Board of Regents of the University of Nebraska as an “additional insured." Please contact our Operations Manager at email@example.com as early as possible for rental information.
