This new state-of-the-art theater will seat up to 530 people and features a 1,076 SF stage with backstage prep area, dressing rooms and offices and an upper balcony / mezzanine level. The new facility also features a large lobby gathering space that will offer concessions, ticket stands and offices. The school plans to use the facility for drama classes, music, chapels, promotions and graduation ceremonies.
The school previously held its drama productions at the Woodland Opera House and now will have their own home for performing arts education, and another facility to make available to the community. David Hargadon, Director of Operations and Development, said “Our goal is to be a light in this community and this new performing arts center will give us another opportunity to share what God has given to us with others”.
This is the second phase of construction for Woodland Christian School. The first phase, a 16,000 SF gymnasium, was completed in September of 2020. The campus expansion plan also includes the construction of a preschool building, which is currently in final design development.
