Huss Center for the Performing Arts
The Huss Center for the Performing Arts is SPA's state-of-the-art performance facility, which opened in the fall of 2015. The Huss Center encompasses almost 35,000 square feet on the west side of SPA’s Randolph Campus. The centerpiece of the facility is the 650-seat auditorium (pictured), which features a fully digitized light and sound system, an orchestra pit, and a 50-foot fly space behind the stage for raising and lowering scenery. Additional spaces include the Driscoll Family Commons, a multipurpose space that can seat 200 and can be used for smaller performances, rehearsals, classes, and gatherings; the Redleaf Arts Commons, the two-story entry and lobby space that also serves as an entrance to the Upper School; the Schilling Family Plaza, a landscaped outdoor space directly to the west of the building that features bench seating and plants native to Minnesota; the Kunin Family Theatrical Design Studio for building and storing sets; and the Jackson Ward Smith dressing room and makeup space for performers.
