ALSCT Bowker Information

Beginning on January 5, 2020 our rehearsals and performances will all take place at Bowker Auditorium on the UMass campus in Amherst. Bowker Auditorium is located within the building named Stockbridge Hall. This can be confusing!

Where is Bowker? Bowker Auditorium is located in Stockbridge Hall on the UMass campus. See this map for the location of the building on the campus.
  To get to the Campus Center Parking Garage, head north on Commonwealth Avenue and turn right at the first traffic light, across from the Mullins Center, on to Campus Center Way. The garage entrance is on your right. Google Directions
  To get to Lot 65, head north on Commonwealth Avenue and turn right at the second traffic light on to Holdsworth Way. Follow the road up a hill, through a stop sign, and the back of Bowker will be in front of you, with Lot 65 on your left. Google Directions


Parking The best place to park is in UMass Lot 65, located behing the building. Parking does not require a permit on weekends or after 5:00 PM on weekdays. From Lot 65 you must enter Bowker by walking around the building to the front entrance. The basement doors at the back of the building and the entrance at the loading dock should not be used as an entrance.

You can also park in the UMass Campus Center Parking Garage. This is sometimes preferable in inclement weather. For rehearsals - parking in the garage will cost only $1 when scanning a QR code that will be available to the cast. For performancs, parking in the garage will cost only $1 when scanning a different QR code that will be available in the lobby. From the garage it is an easy walk to the front entrance to Bowker.

Bowker Locations These are the places in Bowker where we will be going...
  The Lobby: This is the area inside the main entrance to Stockbridge Hall. When you enter the building from the front steps you are in the Lobby.

The House: The portion of the auditorium where the audience sits.

  The Dressing Rooms: Dressing Rooms for male identified actors and female identified actors are located on either side of the basement hallway at the back of the building.
  The Downstairs Hallway: The hallway runs through the basement of the building from front to back.
  Room 40: Our main green room, Room 40, is accessed from the downstairs hallway not far from the two dressing rooms. This room will be used as a Green Room for some cast members. There are two small dressing rooms inside it, one for male identified actors and one for female identified actors. Room 40 will also be used for pre-show warmups.
  The Stage: Also known as 'the deck'. During performances, the cast will access the stage via stairways that go up from the dressing rooms.
