Create a Dynamic and Flexible Theatre

HPAC is going a full interior renovation to create an adaptable performance space while transforming our lobby into a warm and welcoming area where audience members can gather to discuss the show and engage in the important conversations that our productions generate.

Some of the most significant upgrades include:

  • New rear and side walls in the theatre specifically engineered to improve acoustics

  • Curved stage and seating shape to improve sight lines and bring artists closer to the audience

  • Flexible stage and seating arrangements and state-of-the-art technical upgrades to allow for more complex productions

  • Redesigned box office to improve patron experience and customer service

  • Expanded full service bar and cafe offering light fare and snacks

  • New grand staircase in lobby and additional comfortable seating on both levels

  • Upgraded and improved dressing rooms and green room for our artists

  • New multi-purpose room for events, discussions, play readings, education programs, and community use
