Regis Jesuit High School - Performing Arts Center & Student Commons

Aurora, Colorado

This new two story building on an active high school campus joins both the girls’ and boys’ schools together.

The facility houses a 490-seat amphitheater, complete with three practice rooms for music (vocal and instrumental) and theater students, a scene shop, and dressing rooms. The amphitheater is used for performances, assemblies, Masses, meetings, lectures, and competitions.

The new building also serves as the center of the school’s student journalism program with a college counseling center, student communication center, alumni office, and communications office.

Additional features include an apparel shop, and student snack bar (with wifi hotspot) in the main lobby, and a full-service kitchen with adjacent seating. This commons area also serves as the theater lobby and an informal community gathering space.
