DeBaun Auditorium is located in the historic Edwin A. Stevens Hall, the original academic building of Stevens Institute of Technology that is still part of the school today. The Auditorium is a renovated proscenium theater with a mid-size stage and extensive lighting and sound capabilities and seats 470. The technical crew and house staff is comprised primarily of Stevens students who work on all aspects of the Auditorium's events.

Ondrick Music Room
The Ondrick Music Room is a rehearsal and practice location for the musical ensembles and theatre projects of DeBaun Performing Arts Center. It is the home of the Stevens Choir, Jazz Band, Concert Band, Orchestra, and a variety of small ensembles. Voice lessons are also offered in the Music Room, which is currently equipped with a new Yamaha piano, two Boston upright pianos, a Petrof upright piano, and a Baldwin spinet piano. Most are available for student practice when the ensembles are not rehearsing.
Open Rehearsal Hours: When not in use for classes or rehearsals, the Ondrick Music Room is normally open for students to rehearse at their leisure. Open rehearsal hours take place on a first-come, first-served basis in the main room as well as the two small practice rooms. Currently, due to restrictions on campus, these open rehearsal hours have been suspended until further notice.
Subsidized Voice Lessons: Voice lessons are available to students at a rate of $35 per hour. Due to limited availability, students are chosen through an application and audition process. New students are accepted at the beginning of each semester.
For more information regarding rehearsal rooms and/or applying for subsidized voice lessons, please contact Bethany Reeves.
