Personnel

  • The Lively Arts serves the College of Fine Arts in the areas of performance, production, and arts-in-education. In addition to the professional staff listed below, we are also supported by student and internship staff.

    To reach the Lively Arts offices in the Performing Arts Center, please enter the newer addition to Fisher Auditorium/Waller Hall in the rear of the building on the corner of Oakland Avenue and 11th Street. Simply enter the two-story atrium tower stage entrance that sits directly diagonal to Taco Bell. To reach the office, go to the second floor either via the stairs or elevator (there are a couple of signs for the Lively Arts when you enter). The office is adjacent to both the elevator and the stairway door.
