About the Carroll University Theatre Arts Program
 
 

Dedicated to new and innovative theater production, Wisconsin’s oldest theatre organization was inaugurated in June 1896 with a production of Bulwer Lyton’s “Richelieu,” staged by May N. Rankin, the daughter of former Carroll President Walter Rankin. Miss Rankin developed the curricular program in 1901 and eventually produced graduates including Alfred Lunt, who, with wife Lynne Fontanne, has a Broadway theater named in his honor. A museum and theatre center has been established at their former estate, Ten Chimneys, in Genesee Depot, Wisconsin.
