'62 Center for Theatre and Dance, Williams College

William Rawn

A prominent location

Named for the college's class of 1962 which led the fund raising campaign, the MainStage lobby, a glass cube with overhanging roof, presents a dramatic introduction to this complex.
This complex contains several varied venues: the MainStage theater (550-seat proscenium theater); CenterStage (200-seat flexible black-box theater); original Adams Memorial theater, remodeled for the complex; dance studio with three full-length glass walls.

A contemporary building in traditional Williamstown

The curving walls of the exterior clad in light "Jura" limestone contrast with the contemporary MainStage lobby with its glass curtain walls and wood shutters.
