Royal Shakespeare Company to get temporary home


UPI News Service, 12/29/2004 

The Royal Shakespeare Company says it will perform in a new, 1,000-seat temporary theater while its main hall is under renovation from 2007 to 2009.

A spokesman for the company said that $7.8 million has been budgeted to build new performing space over a staff parking garage next to the company's studio theater, The Other Place.

It will be constructed of soundproof material, Corten A, and will be a state-of-the-art theatrical structure. Construction is to begin next year if plans receive approval of the Stratford city council.

The new theater will be the company's home for its core, large-scale repertory performances during renovation of the existing theater. It is expected to be completed in 2006 in time for a festival of the complete plays of William Shakespeare, who was reared in Stratford, married there, and returned to live out his life there after retiring from the stage in London.
