Rossall School to open new performing arts centre

The new centre will create a multifunctional rehearsal and performance space for the arts

Posted by Lucinda Reid | July 25, 2018 | Facilities & buildings

Over the last five years performing arts at Rossall School has flourished, not only in the quality of productions but also in the number of students participating and excelling in this field, both within and outside the curriculum. 

Rossall School’s current performing spaces: Museum Theatre, Big School and Beecham Music School have provided excellent theatre and concert spaces for budding thespians and talented musicians; however, the school is delighted to be able to announce the opening of a new performing arts centre this September.

The opportunity to create such a wonderful space has arisen due to a very generous donation from former student, David McKee. David is the founder and former owner of the McKee Gallery in New York City and is an avid supporter of the arts. Over several visits David has had a great deal of input in to the development of this project, including finding the perfect location.

The performing arts centre will be constructed within Rossall’s current middle school gym space, creating a multifunctional rehearsal and performance space for the arts, with ‘black box’ facility, professional theatre lighting, flexible staging and space for dance. 

This new state-of-the-art facility will increase Rossall School’s arts potential greatly. Carefully woven into the original fabric of the building, the aim is to create a versatile, striking and unique venue, for teaching and performances.
