Goldstein Theatre

The primary host for productions of the Drama, Theatre and Dance Department, Goldstein Theatre is located on the northeast corner of campus, at the intersection of Kissena Boulevard and the Horace Harding Expressway (L.I.E.). The theater is named in honor of QC alums Irving Goldstein, '60, CEO of INTELSTAT, and his actress wife, Susan Wallack Goldstein, '62.  It is a 450 seat proscenium theatre with a 40 foot wide by 18 foot high proscenium arch.  This theatre is equipped with an automated orchestra pit which can be lowered to 7'6" below stage height, a fully computerized lighting system installed in 2006, and ample wing space on both sides.  With direct access to our fully equipped scene shop and paint shop via roll up doors, this is an ideal space for presenting plays, musicals, dance shows and opera. The lobby, fly system, and dressing rooms underwent a complete renovation in 2010-2011.  The newly renovated fly system features 44 linesets plus side tab pipes on both sides of the stage.  Each lineset consists of a 52 foot batten which flies from a minimum of 4' to a maximum of 48' at a maximum speed of 4 feet per second, and can be programmed for a precise trim height which is accurate within 1 millimeter.  The entire system utilizes Stage Technologies' Big Tow winches and is controlled by an Illusionist control console using eChameleon software.
