The Jewish Community Center wished to replace their flat floor "gymatorium with a real theater.
The Axelrod Performing Arts Center represents the last phase of a complete building renovation of the Jewish Community Center of Greater Monmouth, NJ. The new 500-seat theater replaces the original flat floor "gym-a-torium," which was no longer sufficient to meet the needs of the JCC nor the performing arts groups who performed there. In addition to the theater itself, new dressing rooms, storage areas and control booths were built.
Working with acoustician Chris Blair and construction manager Chuck Swaim, Theater Design Inc planned and designed the theatrical equipment as well as seating, sightlines and theater planning for the entire facility.
