  • New audience seating at the Orchestra Level
  • Refurbished audience seating at Dress Circle and the First Balcony Levels
  • Improved lighting and rigging
  • Acoustic enhancements
  • Orchestra shell

The $16.2 million project will be completed in the summer of 2019 in time for the relocation of the Sacramento Community Center Theater events. Updates will be provided as the project moves forward.
