The intimate 220-seat proscenium stage theater was designed and built as a world-class performance space. The theater provides high-end functionality typically found in much larger venues, including full backstage facilities, balconies, catwalks, stage wings, apron, traproom, fly loft, and extensive lighting controls and drapery systems.
The building's spare and modernistic exterior mixes four-by-four-foot panels with areas of shingling that pay homage to the Cape Cod building style. Inside the theater, the ductwork, beams, and sprinkler lines are all exposed and as a result are incorporated as design elements; in the lobby, the gray, blue, and yellow paint scheme was selected to accent these elements, while in the theater they are painted dark and neutral to maintain the focus on the stage.

PAF worked with Newton-based construction manager, Chapman Construction / Design. PAF has collaborated with Chapman frequently over the last 10 years.
