The Antaeus Theatre Company held a groundbreaking event for our new cultural arts center in Glendale on June 11, 2015. Renovations on the 7,600 square-foot retail building at 110 East Broadway in Glendale will take place over the course of a year.
The new Antaeus cultural arts center will be located in Glendale’s growing downtown Art and Entertainment District, east of Brand Blvd. and across from the Americana, which features ample parking, attractive outdoor spaces and pedestrian access. It will house an 80-seat theater and a 40-seat black box, as well as a lobby gallery and a classics library. Renowned theater designer John Sergio Fisher is the architect.
“The groundbreaking on June 11 launched the next chapter for one of the region’s theater gems,” says Antaeus board president David Gindler. “With its illustrious roster of ensemble members, its commitment to inspire audiences through the performance of great classical theater and the wide ranging impact of its educational programs, Antaeus now can look forward to a wonderful new space that will enable its family of actors and audiences to continue to explore stories with enduring themes for generations to come.”
Speakers at the June 11 event will included City of Glendale Councilmember Laura Friedman and Antaeus member Kurtwood Smith, as well as representatives from the Downtown Glendale Association, the Glendale Chamber of Commerce and the Armenian American Chamber of Commerce.
