    440-Seat Theater

The LEED Gold facility is organized around a 440-seat theater that is outfitted with a large workshop and ‘Black Box’ theater. Sloped seating, a traditional orchestra pit, and robust infrastructure allow the space to accommodate a wide range of performances.

In addition to the theater, the building houses several general education and fine art classrooms, a music practice room, a ceramics lab, and kiln, and a digital technology lab.

The concentration of these spaces into a single building makes it more economical to incorporate state-of-the-art technology into each discipline.
