The O'Shaughnessy: The
O’Shaughnessy Theatre is located on the
110+ acre St. Paul Campus of The College of St.
Catherine. The O'Shaughnessy Auditorium plays
host to concerts, lectures and theatrical performances.
The theater’s elegant façade looks
out on a magnificently groomed garden. The lobby
is expansive with dramatic tall windows. The interior
space is warm and energetic. The theatre was originally
constructed in the 1970’s and was recently
renovated in January 2003. The face-lift included
new main floor seats, new carpet, better lighting,
upgraded dressing rooms, concessions and more.
The intimate on-campus venue has a main floor
seating capacity of 653 and a full house capacity
of 1,739; but with balcony and extra pit seating,
the auditorium can max out at 1,814 guests. The
theatre has hosted many musical acts, theatre
shows and ballet performances. The O’Shaughnessy
is a great venue with comfortable seating, high
quality sound and free on-campus parking to see
