<p>I am a huge theatre nerd, so I was wondering if there are any places with live theatre in the surrounding areas?</p>

<p>Also, how is the theatre department at Beloit? Are there many shows put on each semester?</p>

<p>There is great theatre in Madison, Rockland, Milwaukee and Chicago, all are an hour or less away.</p>

<p>Beloit's theatre department is pretty strong for a school of Beloit's size, in my opinion. It puts on 5 shows (1 being a musical) and perhaps a number of smaller student productions (I think). It has a black box theatre and a large main stage. I know many people that are involved with it.</p>

<p>Thank you! :D</p>

<p>Beloit has a new facility, the Hendricks Center for the Arts, which opens up this fall. It will have music, dance, and theater facilities. Also I believe I read it will have a staging lab. They apparently preserved the original look of the building which was the town's library - it sounds really great.</p>

<p>Wow, that sounds great! I can't wait to visit the campus. :D</p>
