We design extraordinary spaces

When you’re in an amazing performance space, you can feel it. Theatre Projects knows how to create performance spaces that come alive. 

We speak the languages of construction, design, and the arts. From visioning through design and construction, we provide advice on planning and design decisions that affect the art, the architecture, how the performance technology functions, and how artists and audience will use each space. 

Working closely with clients, users, architects, and builders, we apply our experience of what makes a dynamic performance space—intimacy, density, flexibility, and simplicity—to create extraordinary spaces.

The gift of giving

It’s been a tough year for the performing arts industry, so we're supporting the people we care about most this holiday season. Instead of sending seasonal greetings cards and desk calendars to our friends and colleagues, we’re sending a monetary donation to an arts organization as well as to a community charity.

But the spirit of fun and collaboration is such an integral part of who we are, and we don’t want to do this without you. So, we thought we’d find a way to have some fun too. We’ve created a lighthearted quiz that tests your knowledge of our team and our work. The winners can nominate where the prize money goes, and we’ll make that donation in your name. So let's help those that are close to our hearts—and have some fun in the process.

Looking for work? We're hiring in our New York and Denver offices!

We’re an exciting company and always looking for new team members with theatre, architecture, or engineering backgrounds. Are you dedicated, hard-working, and fun? Let's see if we're a good fit.

Tiny Necessary Theater

On October 14, Northern Stage—a celebrated LORT (League of Resident Theatres) company in White River Junction, VT—performed a one-woman play It’s Fine, I’m Fine on an indoor stage in front of a live audience for the first time since they were forced to close their theatre in March.  

Getting permission to perform the country’s first indoor professional theatre production in front of a live audience during a pandemic wasn’t easy. Here's how they did it.

Building confidence

Since March, many organizations have been discovering the true potential of digital streaming to their audiences. Offering online experiences while venues have been shuttered has been a necessary way to stay connected with communities and engage with audiences in new and exciting ways. But what role do online platforms play when venues begin to reopen? As social distancing restrictions are lifted further, will there still be a need to offer digital accessibility?

We recommend including digital subscription packages as part of your reopening strategy. Here's how they can help to build confidence with audiences who prefer not to return to in-person performances immediately.

Shanghai Symphony takes a first step towards ‘normality’

May 8 was a momentous day for the Shanghai Symphony Orchestra. For the first time since China went into lockdown at the end of January, they presented a concert—and it was a resounding success. We spoke to Dr. Isaiah Weng, head of the digital and IT department at Shanghai Symphony Hall, to find out more about the concert, how they prepared for reopening night, and what they learned from the experience.
