We knew from the start that turning the school’s original gym into a state-of-the-art auditorium would be a challenge - given the rich history of the school and the historical elements of the project. Your team accepted the challenge with open arms and led us through a design process that incorporated the important history of our school while simultaneously updating the space into a modern and functional auditorium that supports our mission.  Steve Schad Principal

Our team completed a renovation to the high school’s existing gymnasium, converting the space into a state of the art theater and performance space, which opened as the Carol Dauwe Performing Arts Center. Starting with a master plan and a targeted fund-raising campaign, our team worked with the school to renovate the space while maintaining the character of the school. Originally built in 1928, the new space includes seating for over 300, with additional 200 spaces for floor seats. New lighting, sound and video systems provide expanded capabilities to support the school’s fine arts program. A multipurpose room was also included in the design.
