Phillips Academy at Andover

George Washington Hall (Renovation)

The addition to the performing arts facilities at a prestigious New England preparatory school provides both expanded and renovated space to house an impressive and active drama program competitive with that of many colleges and universities.

To accommodate an expanded program, the existing auditorium was completely redesigned and rebuilt as a 400 – 450 seat theatre with a variable form suitable for drama and dance. FDA designed the new stage to work in proscenium, thrust, or arena formats. The newer addition – roughly two-thirds the size of the original building – houses a scene shop, dressing rooms, and a 150-seat studio theatre which is extensively used by the drama and dance departments for experimental productions.
