Hale Centre Theatre
Layton Construction is honored to be the CMGC on Hale Centre Theatre, slated for completion in fall of 2017.
The new performing arts center sits on 2.9 acres and features two theatres comprising a total of 1,361 seats. The theatre-in-the-round boasts 900 seats while the separate proscenium-thrust theater will hold 461. The complex is expected to host more than 700 performances a year between the two theatres.
Layton’s theater expertise was critical throughout preconstruction as a one-of-a-kind stage was incorporated into the design of the theater.
This unique theater is the first of its kind in innovative stage automation and includes 47 pieces of moving machinery powered by 130 motors. Two overhead crane trolleys with eight hoists will be capable of moving 16 individual pieces or performers during a production.
