St. Helena High School Auditorium

The new St. Helena High School Auditorium, designed by HY Architects in association with PBK, is a state-of-the-art facility that includes a 350-seat theater, drama classroom, band room, scene shop, restrooms, box office, and lobby/gathering space. The theater and drama classroom are particularly noteworthy, as they double as the ‘Green Room’ for all performances.

In addition, the facility also boasts cutting-edge lighting, sound, and acoustical systems. The design of the exterior of the building was carefully considered to blend seamlessly with the adjacent Vintage Hall, a historic building on the campus. The entrance to the facility and the campus is both sweeping and welcoming, providing a fitting introduction to the many exciting events and performances that take place in the auditorium. The site improvements made to the campus have also enhanced vehicular and pedestrian access, making the facility more accessible and user-friendly for everyone.
