Woodside High School: Performing Arts Center

Woodside, California

As a school that provides a learning community that challenges their students to reach their greatest intellectual and personal potential, Woodside High School’s new Performing Arts Center is a professional-level facility serving performance and music programs. Used for school and community events, the new theater houses a 500-seat auditorium with a professional size stage and all amenities required for a full production. With flexibility being an overarching design goal – a stage designed with a fully adjustable orchestra lift and a wide-range of acoustical controls and theatrical lighting – it has the ability to support a range of performances from dance to drama to symphony.
