Georgetown University

Davis Performing Arts Center

For the first time, Georgetown University has a space specifically designed for theatre study and performance. FDA and H3HC Architects designed the Davis Center in consultation with theater professionals in the University’s academic departments. Georgetown also asked FDA to help review building plans and recommend how to appropriately outfit the space. The complex includes two spaces: the 230 seat Gonda Theatre and the 100 seat Devine Studio Theatre, plus scene and costume shops.

With state-of-the-art equipment throughout, the Davis Center now provides students and faculty with teaching laboratories for performance and design, two performance venues, a Green Rooms for actors, and temperature-controlled storage spaces for costumes and set pieces. The space also houses the administrative offices for the Program in Performing Arts as well as the faculty offices for the Theater Program.
