Oceanside High School Performing Arts Center featured in San Diego Union-Tribune

Plans are underway to begin construction in January on a $17.7 million performing arts center on the campus of Oceanside High School in Oceanside, California, according to a new article in The San Diego Union Tribune. 

Scheduled for completion in June 2017, the 29,067-square-foot complex will have a 500-seat main theater and a smaller “black-box” style theater, along with an orchestra pit, recording studio, control room, costume storage room, changing room, outdoor work yard to build scenery, and a scene shop classroom.

Harley Ellis Devereaux (HED) is the designer on the project. HED's Jeannette La Quire was interviewed as part of the article.

The striking building will be visible from the Interstate-5 freeway just off of Mission Boulevard, and north of the football stadium. It’s distinguishing feature will be a 60-foot wide wall of glass panels in the front lobby, and metal panels bolted to the outside concrete block walls, painted with a green patina to create an aging copper look.
