Globe Theater at Odessa College

Globe Theater at Odessa College


Odessa College is home to The Globe Theater – a 410-seat venue hosting theatre performances and community activities. The idea of the reconstruction of a Shakesperean Theater in Odessa originated in 1948 in Mrs. Marjorie Morris’ senior English class at Odessa High School as a project of the OHS Shakespeare Club. In the 1960s, the vision of then Odessa College professor Marjorie Morris came to fruition in the construction of the Globe Theater at Odessa College. For 50 years, the Globe Theater has hosted theatre and community events. With the re-establishment of the OC Theatre Performance Program, it also functions as one of the best classrooms on campus.

In 2015, Odessa College became solely responsible for the upkeep and maintenance of The Globe Theater. The theater has been well loved and used for over 50 years and is in need of upgrades and improvements.

After an extensive assessment, we have developed a 3-phase plan:
