VENUES & RENTALS
The Ogle Center contains three indoor performance venues, including the 500-seat Richard K. Stem Concert Hall, the 96-seat Millicent and Norman Stiefler Recital Hall, and the 338-seat Robinson Theater. The Ogle Center is also home to the Ronald L. Barr Art Gallery.
The Ogle Center houses the offices, studios, dressing rooms and classrooms of the IU Southeast Music Department and Theatre Department. The newly-completed Caesars Foundation of Floyd County Amphitheater provides a venue for outdoor events.
Richard K. Stem Concert Hall
The Richard K. Stem Concert Hall is the largest of the Ogle Center's indoor theaters. It is used primarily for the Ogle Center's The Ogle Center Presents series and Children & Family Series, the Louisville Orchestra's Music Without Borders—Ogle Neighborhood concerts, and performances by the IU Southeast Music Department bands, orchestra, and choirs. The Stem holds 500 seats including eight wheelchair locations. With only twelve rows in the orchestra and six in the terrace, each seat provides a clear, unobstructed view of the stage.SEAT MAP
The Robinson Theater has a dramatic atmosphere that's unmatched. With its thrust stage, seven-story flyspace and hidden trap doors, this space lends itself well to the IU Southeast Theater Department productions and dance recitals. The Robinson Theater has 338 seats and three wheelchair locations in a conventional aisle seating configuration.
Millicent and Norman Stiefler Recital Hall
The Stiefler Recital Hall, holding 96 seats, creates an intimate performance and presentation space for the community. Like the Richard K. Stem Concert Hall, this hall has a large projection screen and has teleconferencing capability. The Stiefler Recital Hall is used for faculty and student recitals, community meetings and conferences.
Hugh and Patty Cress Lobby
The Hugh and Patty Cress Lobby, named in honor of long-time Ogle Center volunteers and supporters Hugh and Patty Cress, sees nearly 30,000 patrons annually and can be used as an elegant location for small receptions, intimate gatherings, or conference fairs. The Cress Lobby houses the permanent art exhibit, the James L. Russell Wonderland Way Collection.
Caesars Foundation of Floyd County Amphitheater
For a cherished evening under the sun or stars, the Ogle Center offers an outdoor venue that seats the multitudes. The Ogle Center's Caesars Foundation of Floyd County Amphitheater is located directly behind Knobview Hall, and can seat up to 6,000.
