Historical NoteReturn to Top

Theatre productions were performed at University of Oregon long before the University Theatre was built in 1949. The University Theatre was built when the Department of Theater Arts had outgrown the Guild theatre in Johnson Hall. The new state-of-the-art theater was attached to the west side of Villard Hall and its first production was directed by Horace Robinson. When Robinson retired in 1975 the University renamed the theatre after him. The Robinson Theatre is now a part of the James F. Miller Theater Complex.
