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.

Creating an accessible center for America’s veterans

For more than a century, Syracuse University has been empowering and supporting those who’ve served in defense of the nation. The new Daniel and Gayle D’Aniello Building is the new home of the National Veterans Resource Center (NVRC). It's extremely accessible and features a 938-seat auditorium designed for TED talks, lectures, presentations, and military band performances at the heart of the building.

Celebrating four team members—and their promotions!

We’re thrilled to announce the promotions of four team members in recognition of their contributions to our work and their importance to the future of Theatre Projects! Jim Niesel is now a principal of the firm, and Andrew Hagan, Aaron Wong, and Chris Moore have become associates. Please join us in congratulating them.

The hybrid presenting model: part one

If 2020 has taught us anything about our audiences, it’s that we must connect with them in innovative ways. To be sustainable and supportive of our communities, we must develop programming that extends past the in-venue experience and reaches the community at large. As we look to re-opening strategies, what will the new presenting season look like?

In part one of a series of articles about this topic, we look at why it makes sense to look towards building long-term hybrid presenting models and strategy.

So you think you know Theatre Projects?

After a challenging year for everyone in the arts—and in the wider communities that we live in—we knew that this holiday season would be a difficult time for many. So, we decided to divert our resources to helping those communities and have a little fun in the process! Over the month of December, we ran a holiday quiz so that you could help us select a deserving arts organization and a community charity to win a monetary donation.

Thank you to each and every one of you who took part in our holiday quiz. We were delighted and humbled at the sheer number of responses we received. It seems we're not alone in wanting to give a little something back to the communities we care about this holiday season. If you're curious to know who won our three amazing prizes or want to know what the correct answers were, read on...
