Freud Playhouse

About Dean

Location: Macgowan Hall

The Ralph Freud Playhouse is a 567-seat proscenium theater that is part of UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television. The warm, inviting and versatile space is home to year-round theatrical repertory and musical theater and features a stage size that is typical for a 1,500-seat venue. In addition to stage productions, the playhouse can be used for shooting film or for panels. With stage elevators and space extending 12 feet back under the stage, it can easily accommodate a full orchestra.

Freud Playhouse is available for rental and located across the courtyard from Little Theater, both of which are housed in Macgowan Hall.
