The Hearn Stage is an intimate blackbox theater located on the ground floor of the Rapides Foundation Building (Formerly the Kress Five and Dime Store).  The lobby is located at the corner of Fourth and Johnston Streets.  This venue is designed with an open floorplan allowing the possibility for users to configure the space for their event.  This flexibility makes the Hearn a great choice for meetings as well as performances.
