Renovated SCPA Theater to Open Oct 24 by quotes

After more than a year of renovation and renewal, the Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts is embarking upon a new era with the opening of its state-of-the-art Virginia G. Piper Theater and a star-studded 2009-10 season of dance, jazz, classical and world music, theater and satire.

Tony Award-winning actress and singer Kristin Chenoweth will be the first to perform on the new stage as part of the Oct. 24 ARTrageous Celebration, a benefit for the Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts and Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art.

The new 852-seat Virginia G. Piper Theater will offer the latest lighting
and acoustic technology as well as dramatic improvements in sightlines,
climate control, seating and audience accessibility. Most importantly, the theater’s intimate character, which has long been its hallmark, has been thoughtfully enhanced. Outside the theater, the updated and renamed Dayton Fowler Grafman Atrium has likewise been transformed into a more welcoming and comfortable space that offers visitors many improved amenities, such as a new box office, mezzanine and café managed by Arcadia Farms.

Commissioned by the Scottsdale Public Art Program for the atrium, a radiant work by artist Kana Tanaka will feature more than 100 blown-glass pieces illuminated with fiber-optic lighting.
