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.

White River State Park and Live Nation unveil their new outdoor venue

Tonight, Indianapolis’ newest touring venue, the TCU Amphitheater at White River State Park, will host its first public concert of the 2022 season—and its first public performance since completion! 

While the venue is a new construction, concerts have been taking place at the same site in downtown Indianapolis for well over ten years. Operator Live Nation had been hosting events with temporary stages and structures in the park each summer and wanted something more permanent, with comfortable accommodations for artists and audiences, while still retaining the atmosphere of the concerts from previous years.

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.
