“Theatres are curious places, magician's trick-boxes where the golden memories of dramatic triumphs linger like nostalgic ghosts, and where the unexplainable, the fantastic, the tragic, the comic and the absurd are routine occurences on and off the stage. Murders, mayhem, political intrigue, lucrative business, secret assignations, and of course, dinner.”
― E.A. Bucchianeri, Brushstrokes of a Gadfly
Envisioning a new performance space or restoring your historic theatre or concert space, our theatre planning staff can help you bridge the gap between your artistic vision and architectural needs. We listen to your goals and translate that into program and concepts that are the basis of your facility design.
Whether you're in need of a room design for amplified or natural acoustics, trying to isolate your space from outdoor or adjacent noise sources, or just replacing a noisy mechanical or electrical system, Stages' experts will provide acoustics advice that meets your expectations and budget.
Our team of experts provides detailed design, cost estimation and documentation for the full range of equipment found in performance spaces – understage and overhead rigging, auditorium seating systems, performance lighting, audio-visual systems and variable acoustics.
