Elevating the performance experience for patrons and artists
Title: Kansas City Repertory Theatre
Location: Kansas City, MO
Housed on the University of Missouri – Kansas City campus, the James C. Olson Performing Arts Center serves both UMKC and the Kansas City Repertory Theatre. Helix designed a renovation and 4,000-sq.-ft. expansion, addressing functional deficiencies of the 1970’s building, enhance the patron experience and accommodate future production demands. The renovated facility features an expanded lobby, improvements to the Spencer Theatre, an expanded patron lounge, and a new exterior glass curtainwall facade that visually enhances the building’s presence on campus. Additional updates, a new stage, lighting, acoustics, and seats, are transformative for patrons, students and performers, alike.
