Globe Theatre Model

In 2019, thanks to a grant from the federal Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) and the State Library of Ohio, CSU’s Michael Schwartz Library and Theatre and Dance Department were able to restore a historic model of the Globe Theatre that had fallen into disrepair.

We encourage you to enjoy the beautiful model on display in Theatre & Dance Department in the Middough Building.
