Stafford Centre Performing Arts Theatre

Stafford, Texas

A major element in the ground-up design of Stafford’s civic center, the Performing Arts Theatre seats 1,100 patrons in a simple but characterful hall. The multi-purpose configuration effectively accommodates drama, dance, musical theater and symphony performances with minimal adjustments. Designed to a tight budget, the Stafford Centre complex was realized primarily as tilt-wall construction, with special masonry expression reserved for the public entries. Inside the hall, rich colors and acoustical wall articulation create a memorable space from a minimum of elements.
