Claire Trevor Theatre

The Claire Trevor Theatre was originally known as the Village Theatre. The edifice was renovated thanks to a generous contribution by Academy Award-winning actress Claire Trevor and renamed in her honor when the updates were completed. Today, the proscenium theatre is our largest on-campus venue with seating for almost 300 persons.

Claire Trevor Theatre

Dance legend Donald McKayle has transcended boundaries for more than six decades with a multifaceted and wide-ranging career as a choreographer, director, performer, and professor of dance creating a repertoire of acclaimed masterworks.

The UC Irvine Etude Ensemble is an elite group of undergraduates who are chosen annually by audition. Under McKayle’s guidance, the dancers are not only dynamic performers, but also historians. Dancers are challenged to personalize each movement by forming an emotional and physical connection to the story itself.

Join Professor McKayle and his Etude Ensemble for a night of incredible works!
