Open air theater

Designed by Philadelphia landscape architect Thomas Sears and completed in 1942, this naturalistic open-air theater was built on the west side of the Swarthmore College campus. Screened by holly, oriental spruce, and red cedars, the 220-foot long amphitheater is edged by a low stone wall edged with mature rhododendrons.

All parts of this design have been created so that the audience can see each aspect of the stage. The color pallet used is very calming, which for someone starring at it for a couple of hours would be a blessing. The range of tone stops any piece from disappearing into the background.
