Montreat College recently held a dedication ceremony for the Louan Gideon Theatre, affectionately called “Lou’s Lab,” a new black box theatre on the college’s Montreat campus. The theatre was fully funded by an anonymous donor and named in honor of Louan Gideon, a great friend and supporter of the Montreat College Theatre Program.
The new theatre features state-of-the-art equipment, LED lighting, and sound, and creates a space for theatre students to rehearse and perform.
“It’s thrilling,” says Theatre Program Director Callan White-Hinman. “[Theatre students] have a home to come to, and they see that there’s a professional theatre. They see that we take it seriously. And it offers them a space to grow and become professionals.”
