Mainstreet Theatre, Michigan City

PNC Theatre’s fall and spring productions are performed at Mainstreet Theatre in Michigan City, a straight drive nine miles up Route 421 from the Westville campus, and a couple of blocks from the South Shore Line’s 11th Street Station. Rehearsal typically begin on campus and transition to the theatre in the weeks just before a show opens.

Mainstreet Theatre is a 100-seat venue with professional lighting and sound, and the accumulated costumes and sets from thirty years of professional theatre. We are proud of our eight-year collaboration with the Festival Players Guild, which runs the theatre, and hosts the Canterbury Winter Arts series, including productions by Imaginary Doors Entertainment, as well as music, improv, and more.  See for more information.


Getting Academic Credit for work in Theatre

Our fall and spring productions have courses available for credit toward elective requirements, general education requirements, and the requirements of the English major.

In the fall, THTR 390 Contemporary Dramatic Performance (3 credits) is available. In the spring, two courses are offered: THTR 34700, which offers two credits for work in the cast or crew, and THTR 34800, which offers three credits for involvement in the spring production, as well as participation in an 8-week introduction to acting and Renaissance theatre. The course runs in January and February, before rehearsals for the spring production begin in March.
