    In 1879 Stanford White designed the Casino Theatre as part of the shingled style complex of buildings in Newport, Rhode Island known as the Newport Casino and now home to the International Tennis Hall of Fame. The Theatre, which seats 297 on the main level, is richly decorated with basket-weave plaster and gilded ornamentation.

    Restoring the Theatre involved carefully restoring decorative finishes and features, while introducing new lighting, sound, mechanical and electrical systems. The project provides the flexibility necessary to accommodate Salve Regina University’s theater department as well as summer performances by other theater groups, while simultaneously preserving the historic character of this nationally important landmark building.
