Theatrical Program to get new Home at DePaul University

The Theatre School at DePaul University has broken ground for a new home in Chicago.

The 165,000-square-foot multipurpose facility, designed by the architectural firm Pelli Clarke Pelli, will serve as the western gateway to the university’s campus in the city’s Lincoln Park neighborhood. When completed, the $69 million, five-story building will house a 250-seat theatre, a 100-seat black-box theatre, administrative and faculty offices, classrooms, rehearsal spaces, design studios, workshops and the school’s script library.

Funds for the building’s construction will be provided in part through the university’s Many Dreams, One Mission Campaign, which has a goal of raising $250 million.
