Village Theater
Building Village Theatre
Location Issaquah, WA
Client Robb Hunt
Size 40,000 square feet
Completed 1994
Cost $8 million

This 488-seat musical performance theater was built in the historic section of Front Street in downtown Issaquah. This building incorporated a mixed-use façade to retain and enhance the historic retail character on Front Street.

As the project manager, Maria Barrientos assisted Village Theatre in land acquisition, the hiring and managing of the architect, design team and contractor. The program included a new 60 foot fly tower equipped with rigging, a new sound and lighting system, new theater seating, scene shop, dressing rooms and costume shop. In addition to this, Maria was instrumental in obtaining tax-exempt bond financing for the theater from the State Housing Finance Commission, which constituted 35% of the total financing for the project.
