The Cazenovia Opera House was first acquired by the College in 1968. Almost 40 years later, the Catherine Cummings Theatre, named after 1925 alumna Catherine Cummings, continues to contribute to the academic programs of Cazenovia College, its co-curricular activities and the cultural life of the surrounding Cazenovia community.
The Catherine Cummings Theatre presents cultural events, lectures, plays, musicals, meetings, theatre camps, fundraisers, the Jazz-N-Caz jazz fest, and many other events. The Catherine Cummings Theatre continues to grow and is a vital historic landmark. The college and surrounding communities continue to benefit from this vital cultural facility.
