Richards High School Performing Arts Center

Bulley & Andrews provided general contracting services for Harold L. Richards High School’s addition and remodeling project.

The project included the high school’s new, 25,000 SF performing arts center, which consists of a 600-650 seat theater, a scene shop where sets are constructed, changing rooms, bathrooms, a foyer with a box office and a black box theater adjacent to the main theater. The existing music department was renovated as well.

Since 2010, the 1,837-student school has won eight Illinois High School Association state championships in theater without the benefit of a true performance space. The new performing arts center supports the program’s continued success.
