In the Park

Project Overview

Heapy designed the Mechanical-Electrical systems for the addition and renovation to Playhouse in the Park. The new design fully embraces its leafy surroundings while adding a new Mainstage Theatre Complex to replace the existing Robert S. Marx Theatre and put an outdoor plaza and new entry on the site.

The rebuilt theater will feature a new and more intimate mainstage theatre, better backstage facilities, more comfort for the audience and better acoustics. The addition will improve stage technology and enhance the patron experience with better seat room, legroom, acoustics and sightlines.

One of the new features is a fly gallery, a space above the Mainstage that allows producers to create and move more ambitious stage sets.

This is a $39.5 million theater addition.

Now is the time to develop and implement a safe and effective Water Management Plan to protect your building occupants, maximizing their health and safety upon re-occupancy.
