Leach Center for the Performing Arts

The Leach Center for the Performing Arts is 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 opened for the 2021-2022 school year. The Leach Center, which is named in recognition of a generous lead gift from Bryan Leach and Jennifer Gaudiani, replaced the Froelicher Theatre which opened in 1977.

The Leach Center is a wonderful building 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
