Las Vegas Academy Theater
for the Performing Arts
The Clark County School District and the Las Vegas Academy are proud to
soon unveil our new Theater for the Performing Arts, which will open
with the new 2005-2006 school year. This facility will house many
of the school's performances, including band, orchestra, choir, dance,
jazz band and theatre, as well as fine art from the art students.
A majestic three-story lobby and beautiful art gallery surround a
stunning stage house with full concert shell and cutting-edge
technology, including full scenery and costume shops. The
facility has 750 seats, balcony and partiere seating, and a
benchmark-setting electroacoustic enhanced sound system.
These wonderful features are enveloped in a sound-tight building
specifically engineered to be very quiet.
