Accessibility

Holloway Hall Auditorium

Holloway Hall is the first structure built on campus and currently serves primarily as the administrative office building of the University.

Planned in 1922, the auditorium in Holloway Hall was designed with a gymnasium opening into the rear of the stage. It was so arranged that doors between the auditorium and gymnasium could have been opened, making one large stage which can be used for athletic exhibition, large chorus work, etc. The back of the balcony had a motion picture projection booth. Unfortunately, the construction of the auditorium-gymnasium was deferred until the General Assembly of 1927 provided the necessary funds.

Opened in the fall of 1928, the auditorium was used for college assembly periods and productions by the Sophanes Players, a student dramatic group. The Community Concert Association and similar local groups presented programs of a cultural nature in the auditorium, the largest of its kind in this area. On October 19, 1928, the auditorium was first used by the Wicomico County Parent Teachers' Association on Friday, October 19th. The Glee Club performed "The Dragon of Wu Foo" on February 8, 1929 and on February 29, 1932, a pageant celebrating the George Washington Bi-centennial was held in the auditorium.

The Holloway Auditorium, located just inside the main entrance of Holloway Hall and up the marble stairs adorned with massive pillars, is now a modern 687-seat auditorium. Major renovations occurred in the fall of 2013 within the auditorium and they include: a new state of the art sound system using cutting edge technology; an all new lighting system utilizing LED fixtures; a new video projection system, new seating and a wheelchair lift to the stage.
