St. Elizabeth School Theatre

This 400 seat theatre is at the heart of the school’s Regional Arts Program. This program offers an integrated approach to learning through the arts, striking a balance between academics and the arts.

The theatre is a multi-purpose, flat floor room. The room is equipped with retractable seating which allows multiple configurations, and features a large orchestra pit which can be covered when not needed.
Novita designed  and specified economical systems and equipment to keep the project within the school’s budget, while still accommodating the students’ needs.  

An interesting and unusual feature of this theatre is the integration of natural light.
