The Church Fine Arts Complex, opened in 1962, houses the Departments of Music, Art, Speech Communication and Theater, and is home to the Nevada Repertory Company, Nightingale Concert Hall and the Sheppard Contemporary gallery.

James Edward Church was professor of Latin, German, classical art and history at the University of Nevada, Reno from 1892-1959. Church's development of the first snow surveying techniques and a system of analyzing avalanche hazards brought recognition to the school and the state.

Each spring, Church Fine Arts plays host to one of the University's most successful outreach efforts, the Reno Jazz Festival, attracting thousands of participants from high schools and universities from throughout the region.

What a wonderful show for the whole family! The music, the staging, the acting, the singing and the dancing was so well done and energetic. The set was nicely done and worked so smoothly with the story. I highly recommend seeing this musical before it ends as you will not regret the experience.
