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.

We commit to change

Theatre Projects recognizes systemic racism permeates every part of our society, including the arts, culture, and entertainment industry. Only meaningful action will create an equitable, compassionate, and inclusive future. 

Nos comprometemos a cambiar

Theatre Projects reconoce que el racismo sistémico impregna cada parte de nuestra sociedad, incluyendo las artes, la cultura y la industria del entretenimiento. Solo la acción significativa creará un futuro equitativo, compasivo e inclusivo. 

Meet Gena Buhler, our head of new business development in North America

With over 20 years' experience in event production, venue management, operational logistics, festival and program development, and relationship-building for critical partnerships, Gena knows what it takes to transform neighborhoods into vibrant creative communities.

She’ll be using that knowledge to help us build relationships with new clients, understand their dreams, and bring their vision to reality. She’ll also be a key member of our strategic planning team, offering timely and expert advice on project needs, feasibility, and visioning, as well as guidance on artistic programming, operations, and other areas of business and revenue planning as needed.

Online broadcasting explained: why it's a great idea, and how you can do it

Thinking about integrating broadcast capabilities into your venue, but don't know where to start? It's not as complicated (or as expensive!) as you might think. It helps promote diversity, inclusivity, and accessibility, and you can get started with technology you probably already own. We created a video to explain the basics.

Supporting the road to recovery

One of the most inspiring things we’ve seen coming out of this crisis is the theme of giving. We’ve been inspired by the creativity and resilience of our colleagues in arts organizations around the world who have stepped up to keep the arts alive in their communities while their venues have been closed. Whether you’re preparing to re-open or you’re working hard to stay connected to audiences remotely, you’re a constant and reassuring reminder that we’re in this together—today and tomorrow. Your ability to adapt, to innovate, and to continue making those connections is an inspiration to us all. Thank you.

Jim Niesel rides again with the Long Reach Long Riders

Since 2004, the Long Reach Long Riders have been raising money for charities in the entertainment business’ technical community through annual around the country motorcycle rides. Jim Niesel has been riding with the Long Reach Long Riders since 2007, and this year will be his fifth charity ride with them. The ride this year will be a relay tour and the riders will relay an oversized kazoo from California to Maine. Jim will be leading the penultimate leg of the tour on July 1 (Day 15) from Stratford, CT through to St. Johnsbury, just below the Canadian border—and Theatre Projects will be behind him every step of the way!

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.
