Looking Back on 2023

This past year, The Shalleck Collaborative has been a part of many impactful projects. Over the summer alone, we celebrated the ribbon cuttings of three remarkable theaters, each of which bring a new opportunity to their unique communities.

Nimoy Theatre, Los Angeles, CA

UCLA’s presenting arm, The Center for the Art of Performance, extended their reach off campus and into the Westwood community by adapting an underutilized, historically landmarked movie house. The newly imagined Nimoy Theater is an intimate theater that promises to be a hub for innovation and hope. This versatile workhorse marries elegance with simple adaptability, making it perfect for a wide variety of artistic performances. With enhanced acoustics, flexible seating, expandable staging options, and updated technical capabilities it’s an ideal space for emerging artists and experimental work. Our dedicated team played a pivotal role in preserving revered aspects of the venue while ensuring that art will “live long and prosper”.

Field Arts & Events Hall, Port Angeles, WA

Field Arts & Events Hall, Port Angeles, WA

The Field Arts & Events Hall in Port Angeles, Washington held its grand opening in July providing both a theatre and a community ‘living room with a view’. This Hall, made possible by a generous philanthropist, promises to be a cultural centerpiece for Port Angeles and the surrounding communities. By hosting a diverse range of events, from classical concerts to community theater productions, it will be a vital part of the local arts scene. Congratulations to the region for believing in and supporting this significant endeavor.

Bainbridge Performing Arts has long been a vibrant community theatre, central to island life. Over the years, it had outgrown its humble beginnings, prompting significant renovations that formalized the space, added an exquisite multi-purpose studio and a welcoming lobby. The transformation into The Buxton Center ensures that the theater can cater to the diverse needs of the community, further strengthening its role as a home for artistic expression and cultural enrichment. It's not just a theater; it's a symbol of community cohesion and creativity.

In addition to these three theatres, we celebrate the design and construction milestones for countless spaces. With each project, we continue to build on our commitment to serving communities through innovative design and leveraging technology. We look forward to the incredible performances, cultural exchanges, and memorable experiences these spaces will provide for years to come.
