Arizona Broadway Theatre in the West Valley announced Wednesday that it is turning one of its performance spaces into a "hi-tech multi-media performance, banquet and conference space," according to a news room.
The 1,000-square-foot Encore Room will be expanded to 3,500 square feet, the release said. Construction is set to begin at the end of August. It is scheduled to be completed in early next year.
Brad York, the theatre's director of marketing for the Peoria theatre, said in the release that the expansion will allow the theatre to host "a variety of diverse programming," including concerts, guest artists and business seminars.
Arizona Broad Theatre is located at 77th Avenue and Bell Road within Peoria's "P83" arts and entertainment district.
