Knox College's Ford Center for the Fine Arts is a superbly endowed facility for theatre, dance, and music. At virtually any hour of the day you can find Knox students creating in the Center's art studios, theatre facilities, music halls, and practice rooms.

Harbach Theatre Knox's "main stage" theatre. It is a dual-configuration space: the stage and a section of the audience are situated on a 72 ft diameter turntable, capable of rotating 180 degrees to provide a proscenium configuration that seats 600 and a thrust configuration that seats 450. Designers over the years have developed many unique and non-traditional ways of working with the space. Harbach is home to each term's main-stage production as well as the Spring Formal Dance Concert and numerous visiting groups and events.

Studio Theatre Knox's 40ft x 60ft flexible "black box" theatre-a room within which the arrangement possibilities are nearly endless, seating about 100 people on average.
