MAYBANK PERFORMING ARTS THEATER
Theater Projects Consultants designed multiple flexible and functional off-Broadway spaces ready for any challenge posed by local and international producers. Each nook and cranny has a purpose, boasting ease of use for the crew, just the way theaters should be.
Casas + Architects housed these venues under a non-intimidating roof – transparent and warm – inviting pedestrians to experience art without fear. The façade tells a story of how art breaks free, shattering conventions and norms, reaching out to the audience – inspiring and enlightening.
The Maybank Performing Arts Theater is meant to be a welcoming space to art-lovers, art-amateurs, professional artists and anyone who just wants to celebrate the arts and have a good time.
The Globe Auditorium is a flexible space for theatrical productions, corporate events, symposiums, personal celebrations, studio photography, and more.
