Established in 1978, The University's Reichhold Center for the Performing Arts is a 1,200 seat outdoor amphitheatre that is the premier venue for artistic and cultural development. The Center offers an annual schedule of presentations that includes plays, classical and contemporary music, dance, and an international film and video festival. Outreach and development activities include the Caribbean Repertory Theater, the Summer Youth Theater, and the Digital Video Institute (DVI). In its outreach, the Center has an explicit focus on youth, deriving from the belief that early exposure to and participation in expressive arts and media promotes life-long appreciation and growth.
