As summer comes to an end, construction continues on our new home in downtown Glendale. We’ve moved our offices to a temporary space around the corner from our new home so we’ve been enjoying seeing the daily progress. Over the past few months, our contractor and his team have been busy framing out walls, tiling restrooms, welding pipe grids in our two theaters, and installing the first layer of the sprung floor in the black box. Here are a few pictures of the progress on the space so you can see the exciting transformation too:

In the next few weeks, the drywall will be going up and then all the things that will make our new space become our home will start going in. It’s an exciting time at Antaeus and as always, we want to thank you for being part of this incredible journey!

We may not be able to move into our new home for another couple of months, but that doesn’t mean we’re slowing down at Antaeus. We’re excited to announce our Fall Academy classes, and it’s a roster that really complements our upcoming season. If you can’t wait to see Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, come study the work of Tennessee Williams. If you’re looking forward to Nambi E. Kelley’s adaptation of Native Son, delve into the work of other playwrights from the Kilroys’ annual List. And it wouldn’t be the Antaeus Academy without some Shakespeare classes, to get you ready for Shakespeare’s classic comedy As You Like It.
Or if you’re not excited about any of those, there’s George Bernard Shaw, the Comedy of Manners, and a Voice class – there’s something for everyone!
