The Jane and Arthur Stieren Theater is stage to the Trinity theatre department's four yearly productions, along with other large campus and community events. The theater was renovated in 1999, which included updating of its sound, lighting, and rigging systems. The audience area was reconfigured to create a 330-seat orchestra seating area and an additional 167 seats in a newly created balcony.
