ALABAMA CENTER FOR THE ARTS

ACA STUDIO THEATRE

Decatur, Alabama

This 200-seat flexible studio theatre is the heart of the small performing arts center built for Athens State University and Calhoun Community College. The flexible seating platforms allow for multiple performance configurations including thrust, arena, and a more traditional endstage.

The room features a lower performance catwalk, for performer and production use, and an upper lighting catwalk, allowing safe access to overhead lighting. The small scale of the room allows it be an effective teaching and performance space while remaining the right size for the community and their audiences.

TheatreDNA provided theatre planning, theatre design, and performance equipment design and specification, subcontracted to Theatre Projects.
