Cassel Open Air Theatre
Cassel Open Air Theatre was created in 1936 by Doane alumnus and Treasurer A.T. Cassel. This outdoor theatre is the site of commencement exercises each year. Cassel, who graduated in 1894, was responsible for campus landscaping for many years. Doane renovated the open air theatre in 2011, expanding the space, replacing retaining walls, and updating landscaping and other features.
