LaPorte High School Performing Arts Center

Plans for the new performing Arts Center were presented to High School staff on November 1. Refer to the drawings at the bottom of this post.  

The design team will examine adding accessible restrooms off the main corridor. They will also look closer at the south entry to the school from the parking lot that is affected by the new construction. The site impact of the new construction will be studied further and discussed at the next meeting. Relocation or deletion of the ticket booth will also be examined to open up the Lobby area.

The relocation of the Stagecraft area to the new construction allows the existing Stagecraft area to potentially be re-purposed into a Lab Theater. The sketches below illustrate how this space could work further.
