    • Project objective was to bring a 40-year-old facility up to current code standards with proper sized pre-function lobby and restroom facilities. Scope included renovation of the main theatre space to 631 fully accessible seats in a continental layout. Main function is a state-of-the-art Teaching Theater for drama, dance, band and choral performances. Existing storage space was converted into a new “black box” theater for teaching and small performance use. New technical infrastructure provided opportunities for “road shows” to perform at the facility. Facility supports the new Entertainment Industry Technologies (EIT) program with three levels of recording studios and teaching spaces. Rebuilt all audio-visual technology infrastructure throughout facility. Provided a box office and multi-function service counter in the lobby, ADA upgrades for public access from the campus side and parking side of the site.
