An 850-seat multipurpose hall and a 300-seat black box theatre are part of a proposed performing arts centre in the heart of Fredericton, New Brunswick. The venue will replace the Playhouse, a cultural hub in the city’s downtown.
The new venue is to be built in phases, to make sure it continues to have performances during construction. First, a smaller 300-seat black box theatre will be built and in the second phase the main theatre will be torn down and rebuilt to seat 850.
The building will aim for a LEED certification.
