A ribbon-cutting ceremony and reception is planned Monday, September 8, for the new Hilltop Theatre on the Southwestern Oklahoma State University campus in Weatherford.

The ceremony will be held at 2 p.m., and the reception/open house will continue until 3:30 p.m. The public is invited.

SWOSU President John Hays said a formal grand opening dinner will be held December 5.

The 9,500 square foot theatre was made possible by the Oklahoma Higher Education “Futures Under Construction” Capital Bond Program. The theatre is located just west of the Fine Arts Center on the SWOSU campus.

The Hilltop Theatre replaces the Old Science Building Auditorium, which is now being renovated into classrooms and laboratories.

The first production in the The Hilltop Theatre will be October 9-11 when the SWOSU Department of Communication and Theatre presents the comedy, Circus Olympus.
