Hartung Theater Renovation

University of Idaho
Moscow, ID

This Feasibility/Pre-Design Study assessed Hartung Theater with a primary focus on the theater equipment, furnishings, seating and patron circulation within the auditorium. A secondary focus was on the lobby space and its ability to handle 250 patrons during pre-functions, intermission and receptions. A concept and $1.5 million construction budget were developed that allow a phased approach to the renovation work. A program was developed that identifies the following prioritized list of improvements:

• Auditorium equipment including new seats, stage curtains and upgrades to stage light fixtures.

• Finish upgrades and new house lights in the existing lobby and auditorium space.

• An upgrade to the fire separation between the scene shop and stage.

• An expanded lobby for 250 patrons including accessible toilet facilities.

• Remodel of other lobby spaces including concessions, box office and mezzanine access.

• Elevator access for backstage shop and storage spaces.

• Improved accessibility.
