Academy Award-winning actress Greer Garson's and Buddy Fogelson's generous contributions to the College of Santa Fe led to the construction of the Greer Garson Theatre Centre, dedicated in 1965. The Centre, home to the Performing Arts Department, consists of a 500-seat mainstage theater named after the long-time friend and benefactor of the College; the 90-seat black box Weckesser Studio Theater; scene and costume shops; a dance studio; and practice rooms and classrooms. Hailed as Santa Fe's premier performance venue, the Greer Garson Theatre stages four major productions each year. Numerous comedies, dramas, and musicals fill the Centre with locals and visitors alike. The Weckesser Studio Theater hosts musical concerts as part of the College of Santa Fe's Collaborations Music Series.
The College of Santa Fe's Performing Arts Department enjoys a national reputation as an outstanding center for pre-professional training in theatre, offering craft-intensive performing arts training program that focuses on both performance and technical aspects of theater.
