The Performing Arts Centre contains a 350-seat flexible theatre, a rehearsal hall, music and drama classrooms and practice rooms designed for the drama and music departments of this private school.
The 32,300-square-foot theatre has a floor that can be changed to a theatre-in-the-round, proscenium or flat-floor configuration. The seating is a combination of raked retractable and fixed forms. The main performance space has two lighting gallery levels, catwalks, a balcony level and a control room. The simple design enables school children to operate all aspects of the stage and auditorium. The Performing Arts Centre’s colonnade and timber entrance resembles a marquee, large enough for a gathering area before and after performances.
