The Wheeler School will dedicate its new Center for the Arts, the largest campus building project in school history, at 6:30 pm, Friday, October 17 during Alumni Weekend. Beginning in July 2013, Wheeler broke ground on construction of its 18,000 square foot facility which includes a completely-renovated and modernized Wheeler Memorial Hall theater plus a new assembly/performance space with an entrance from Angell Street and seating for 400. The center was designed by Ann Beha Architects and managed by general contractor dck worldwide. Wheeler Hall will become a stand-alone, state-of-the-art theater with flexible seating, modern 'green room,' costume storage and expanded back-stage areas. The new assembly space will have 5 new performing arts classrooms, 4 practice rooms, 1 recording studio and 2 student lobby/lounge areas.
Take a virtual walk-through here.
Alumni are welcome back any time of year but especially at Alumni Weekend, this October 17-18. Check out the activities and more at your Wheeler Alumni page
