California Academy of the Arts is a unique partnership of professional theater companies and primary and secondary educational facilities on an urban site, geared toward providing theater patrons with unparalleled experiences, and allowing students the opportunity to learn along side professional actors and crew. The complex comprises four theater venues: 1500 seat theater, 600 seat theater, 200 seat flexible use theater, and 100 seat flexible use theater. Educational and rehearsal space for the visual and performing arts is directly adjacent to the theater complex – facilitating an integrated learning experience for primary/secondary students, as well as BFA candidates.
The California Academy of the Arts forms the centerpiece for the new public piazza in the Rail-yards, developed by Thomas Enterprises in Sacramento, California. Full production facilities to support the theaters are also on site. The complex envisions planted outdoor roof gardens for use before and after theatrical events, or for private and public events. The project has been envisioned by many of the major arts groups in the region, including Sacramento Theater Company, California Musical Theater, Sacramento Ballet, Capitol Stage, Sacramento Choral Society, Sacramento Philharmonic, among others.
