Alex Theatre Expansion
The Alex Theatre completed a 6,600 square foot expansion of its backstage facilities in 2014. The groundbreaking was July 1, 2013, and the renovations were completed in June of 2014.
To meet the rising demands of improved backstage access and loading capacity, Glendale Arts and the Glendale Successor Agency invested $5.2 million to expand and renovate the Theatre to better serve the delivery, loading, and set-up needs of productions hosted at the Alex.
The upgraded amenities include additional dressing rooms, storage and shop space, a new freight elevator to access the street and subterranean levels, a new passenger elevator, and additional stair and hallway access to assist with loading.
