Seattle Rep PONCHO Forum Renovation 2018
Client:Seattle Rep
Project Category:Resident Professional Theatres
Completion Year:2018
Location:Seattle, Washington
The PONCHO Forum is a black-box space in daily use for a variety of mission-driven activities, from mainstage rehearsals and new play readings to youth arts education workshops, public programs, and community engagement initiatives like Public Works Seattle. But with no significant updates since its construction in 1983, the PONCHO Forum is also woefully outdated.

The PONCHO Forum Renewal Project will bring this venue into the 21st century with state-of-the-art theatrical sound and lighting systems, and audiovisual capabilities to ensure artists have the tools that they need to create theatre of the highest caliber. For audiences and patrons, there will be a new flexible seating unit and a gorgeous window installed that will open up the company's artistic process to observers outside.
