The Adeline Graham Theatrical Training and Innovation Center is a brand new facility located on the 3rd floor of Proctors. 

The Addy, as it will be commonly known, houses a 100-seat theatre, multi-use classrooms, a media lab, dance studio, rehearsal room/flex space and a variety of amenities which will serve over 500 students and 10,000 patrons annually.

Beginning in January 2018 the School of the Performing Arts at Proctors will host 200+ students in weekly classes including the middle school-based Acting Academy and the high school-oriented TheatreTECH.

In collaboration with Workforce Development Institute, TheatreTECH at The Addy will provide hands-on experience for participants, with apprenticeship programs connecting emerging professionals with training and certification to work in a variety of performing arts careers.

The performance space, largely staffed by these students, will add another distinct venue to Proctors—serving as art house cinema, concert hall and theatrical stage.
