Special Projects

McDonald Theatre

Nebraska Wesleyan’s theatrical productions have introduced generations to the joy of the theatre and launched many successful careers. They have enthralled audiences time and time again, sharing unforgettable stories.

The vision for NWU Theatre has expanded. As we consider future improvements to campus facilities, McDonald Theatre takes center stage. McDonald has served the university well, but the 1981 facility is showing its age.

Nebraska Wesleyan has hired HDR, an international architecture firm based in Omaha, to renovate McDonald Theatre. The project focuses on new seats, a new stage and a new lobby.

McDonald Theatre has given the university and the community 36 years of inspiring and innovative theatre. We look forward to watching the curtain rise on its next act.
