Performing Arts

McAlpin renovationCultural enrichment is a vital part of every person’s education, and students are provided with many cultural activities at IRSC. Music and drama students participate in the production of plays and musicals many times each year in the McAlpin Fine Arts Center, a professional quality 620 seat theatre, and the Wynne Black Box, a versatile venue that seats 75-100 patrons. Student performance groups include the song and dance troupe “Company,” the Jazz Band, Symphonic Band, College Chorale, Theatre Program, and Theatre Touring Group.

The Performing Arts Series brings professional entertainers to campus each year. Such notable and diverse performers as songstress Judy Collins, entertainer/singer/comedian Vicki Lawrence, country star Lee Greenwood, the world famous Manhattan Transfer, singer/dancer Sandy Duncan, singer/songwriter Rita Coolidge, and Robert Wagner and Jill St. John have entertained IRSC students and the public.
