Put Performance at the Heart of Huron
Shakespeare may have said all the world is a stage, but when it comes to creating the best possible environment for performance and civic engagement, Huron recognizes this is not the case. That’s why, within the Heart of Huron, we are building a 450-seat performance hall where our students will act, learn, debate and engage with influential leaders from around the world.
Performance has been a part of Huron’s prestigious legacy for many decades. The Huron Underground Dramatic Society (HUDS), a theatre group driven by student interest and talent, is one of Huron’s oldest and most popular clubs. Since its inception, several decades ago, our student performers and production crews have made do without a purpose-built stage, but that is about to change.
Huron’s largest-ever auditorium will not only provide a space for our brightest stars to shine. This innovative venue will also play host to Leaders with Heart, from around-the-world, who will bring new perspectives to our campus and help our students recognize their prerogative to create positive change.
By creating a 450-seat auditorium and performance stage, we are greatly increasing Huron’s ability not only to welcome and nurture students who are passionate about the arts, but also position our university as London’s newest centre for political, humanitarian and cultural engagement.
Name one – or more – of our new, gloriously Huron red theatre seats and help our university invite more of the community-at-large into the imaginative world of performance and learning created by young people with unbelievable stories to tell.
