Leach Center for the Performing Arts

The Leach Center for the Performing Arts will be an inspiring venue for the theatrical productions, concerts, and recitals that showcase the Colorado Academy performing arts and music programs.
Construction of the Leach Center for the Performing Arts began in August 2020, and the new building will be ready for students in fall 2021. The Leach Center, which is named in recognition of a generous lead gift from Bryan Leach and Jennifer Gaudiani, will replace the Froelicher Theatre which opened in 1977.

The latest renderings of the Leach Center walk you through the interior and give you a sense of how wonderful the building will be for CA students, teachers, and the entire CA community. Key features of the new building designed by Shears Adkins Rockmore Architects include:

  • Flexible spaces for teaching, rehearsing, and performing
  • Upgraded digital sound, lighting, and video equipment
  • State-of-the-art theatrical rigging system
  • Improved backstage, dressing room, and technical theater work spaces
  • Increased seating capacity
  • Improved accessibility
  • Expanded lobby space and repositioned theater entrances
  • Effective heating and cooling system
  • Needlepoint bipolar ionization system

We invite your support of the Leach Center for the Performing Arts, a space that will entertain, educate, and engage the entire CA community for many years to come.
