Rinker Playhouse and Presson Hall

The Kravis Center for Performing Arts has served as a community catalyst for more than 20 years.  Sitting on 10.6 acres of land on the highest point in West Palm Beach, Florida, it boasts four venues for use.  Many regional based organizations such as the Miami City Ballet and the Palm Beach Opera call the Kravis CPA home.

Recently, the institution has been growing in recognition, size and community involvement, and is considered a leading force in the social and economic fabric of the community.  As a result of this growth, IAStage was contacted to renovate and modernize the facilities for the Rinker Playhouse.

IAStage developed and installed a unique tiered SkyDeck™.  They now have a better, safer work environment for outreach and community groups.  SkyDeck™ also created a more versatile lighting flexibility for Kravis CPA.  Their SkyDeck™ system, which covers part of the stage and extends into the large front of house area, allows for a variety of lighting possibilities.  This system will also be capable of growing with the Kravis CPA for years to come.

The Kravis CPA liked their new SkyDeck system so much, they called IAStage back to also renovate Persson Hall with a similarly designed tiered SkyDeck system.
