Wadsworth High School and Community Campus

Part of a new, 200,000 square foot high school building, the nearly complete performing arts and community center includes a 700-seat auditorium, rehearsal rooms for band, orchestra, and choir, and a drama studio. The auditorium is for use by both the music and theatre departments and is equipped with an orchestra shell and retractable curtains to make the transition. The auditorium's immediate adjacency to the competition gymnasium required special attention to detailing of foundations, superstructure, and services so that intense crowd noise from the gym does not disturb performances in the auditorium.
