Project Description

The George Gardner Performing Arts Center was the finalization of a 30 year planning process for the Holbrook Unified School District and the Community of Holbrook. After a bond election process held in November 2005, the District was granted with 4.5 million dollars to start the construction of this facility. The School District and the community coordinated a fund rising campaign to a final budget of 7.5 million for the construction of the building. The facility has a full fly loft with a 50’-0” wide proscenium and orchestra pit, with a seating capacity of 809 in 27,000 S.F. The auditorium was designed with careful review of the natural acoustics in it’s shape and materials selection to provide excellent natural acoustics throughout the house.
