Missoula Children's Theatre

MCT's Center for the Performing Arts wanted a new 332 seat theatre placed into an existing school gymnasium which now serves as the home of the internationally known Missoula Children's Theatre. The project includes an addition to the existing building to house a lobby and reception gallery, additional classrooms on an upper level and a workshop adjacent to the new theatre.  The addition was designed to complement the existing 1930s art deco elementary school building and give it a playful, yet strong civic presence at the same time.
