Lee H. Salisbury Fine Arts Theatre (click for the history).

Fairbanks's best equipped theatre is our main classroom.

A 468-seat proscenium theatre which is roughly 40' wide & 22' tall, 60 line sets (including 6 electrics, main curtain, grand border, scrim, cyc & standard masking in a 59' fly loft), over 20 opportunities for traps, large hydraulic orchestra pit, 2-story side slots, surround sound system, over 500 dimmers and a full complement of lighting equipment.

Conveniently located in the heart of “lower campus”, connected to the Fine Arts Complex accessed through the Great Hall (where both our box office and department office are located).

The Salisbury actually opens up to the Lab Theatre; a flexible space with reconfigurable seating risers, the playing space is effectively 80’ deep.

Truly an amazing space to study Undergraduate Theatre and Film.

Theatre UAF Scene Shop

UAF Scene Shop

The UAF Scene Shop is conveniently located just off Stage Right of the Salisbury Theatre. A well-equipped shop seperated by 20+ foot tall sound-proof doors, we can make it look like Rome was built in a day!

Theatre UAF Costime Shop

Theatre/Film UAF’s Costume Shop is located on the bottom level of the Fine Arts Complex in room #107. Shop hours are from 1-5pm Monday thru Friday. The costume shop is staffed by a part-time supervisor and 1-3 student assistant(s). The costume designer is also regularly on-hand.

UAF’s Costume shop is unusually large and spacious compared to most theatrical costume shops around the world. Facilities include an accessory and shoe storage room, a room for hat, wig and makeup storage and upstairs storage for stock costumes. Attached to the costume shop are the men’s and women’s dressing rooms and bathrooms, equipped with showers. The shop and storage facilities has been praised by one costume designer as “the most organized costume shop on the planet!”

Besides construcing costumes for main stage shows, the shop is also used for costume design classes, students working for practicum credits and the Student Drama Association. The costume shop loans out costumes and equipment to students and community non-profit organizations.

KUAC Television studio

We have a strong relationship wtih KUAC; the Public Broadcasting Stations in Fairbanks, Alaksa (conveniently located down the hallway from the Theatre Department).  Many of our Film courses occur in their television studio.
