The Performing and Fine Arts pathway school in the Omaha Public Schools District, Omaha South High School, has experienced growth within its Performing Arts Program. The increased enrollment highlighted that the facilities were both outdated and inadequate. In the summer of 2021 APMA was hired to design a Performing Arts addition to the high school which includes a new lobby, new box office, 250-seat recital hall, rehearsal spaces for vocal music and instrumental music, as well as dance studios, and a new visual arts classroom. A renovation to the existing school will include a new Black Box Theater using existing space, as well as a new entrance, box office, and procession sequence to the Black Box Theater and auditorium. The project has gone through Schematic Design and is currently in fundraising.

Scope of Work
Addition + Renovation
This legacy project will invigorate current students and welcome those currently left out, while providing flexible spaces for all educational endeavors. Multiple performance spaces will allow for student and community performances while maintaining space for education and community engagement. With careful renovation of existing facilities and the addition of 58,000+ SF of new space, this project paves a path for the arts education program to have lasting impact on the Omaha Community.
