University of Pittsburgh, Charity Randall Theater

The Charity Randall Theatre is part of the Steven Foster Memorial at the University of Pittsburgh. The 480 theatre is the home of the University of Pittsburgh Department of Theatre, the Pittsburgh Repertory Theatre, and other local groups. In 2003, FDA worked with WTW Architects on a $3.5 million renovation of the historic performance space. Renovation work included new seating, enhanced stagehouse structure, new manual counterweight rigging, and a new stage lighting system. The major physical change to the theatre was the introduction of a forestage lighting catwalk and rigging support steel, which drastically improved safety and technical flexibility.
