The Lern­er Theatre

Tp  The Lerner Theatre 1

The Lerner Theatre, formerly the ELCO Theatre, was restored to its former 1924 glory. Schuler Shook was involved with the pre-design study and the resulting renovation that began in 2009.

The renovation included an expanded stage and support facilities. The orchestra level floor was modified to improve sight lines and ADA access. Structural challenges were overcome in the basement to allow an automated orchestra pit lift to be installed.
