Join us! Naming opportunities are still available.
It’s a community effort. And we need you now to support the Building Community Campaign. There are many ways to get involved both as a volunteer and as a donor.
Thanks to the dedication and commitment of our many in our community, we have already made significant progress towards our $52.5 million goal. We now look to you - alumni, parents, grandparents and friends - to offer your generous support.
Every gift counts as we ask the community to support this important campaign for Greenhill. All contributions to the Building Community Campaign will be prominently recognized on the honor roll for the campaign on the website and in the printed final campaign report.
Permanent recognition will begin at the $25,000 in the Dining Hall and at $50,000 in the new Marshall Family Performing Arts Center.
Additional naming opportunities over $1,000,000 are available.
With high-tech equipment for lights, sound, and audiovisual equipment, the Control Room and Digital Suite will serve as the nerve center for all activities in Proscenium Theater. Students will receive hands-on experience setting the mood and enhancing the actors’ performance in this state-of-the-art technical theater space.
The Grand Staircase will be a focal point of the Center serving as a stunning and memorable representation of Weiss/Manfredi’s vision. With large landings, the staircase will offer unique performance spaces, extending shows and concerts into all public spaces in the building.
The Lower School Dining Hall will provide a space designed specifically for our youngest students, with height-adjusted tables, chairs and serving stations. With seating for up to 88 students in pre-kindergarten through first grade, this dining room will have a dedicated entrance which will allow for prominent external naming recognition and convenient access for students.
The large lower level dressing rooms sit off the back of house hallway, a short distance from backstage entrances to both the Proscenium Theater and the Studio Theater. The rooms include ample space for dressing, a bank of lit mirrors for make-up application, and dedicated restrooms. In these rooms, students will mentally and physically prepare for performances on grand stages.
The Kitchen, the soul of the Dining Hall and Student Center, will include an updated layout, improving workflow and capacity. New equipment, including a hearth oven, will expand the culinary options available for on campus events ranging from breakfasts to intimate lunches to three-course dinners in the Grand Lobby of The Marshall Family Performing Arts Center. In addition to on-campus catering, the Kitchen will continue to make and serve nearly 1,500 lunches for students and faculty each day.
The Technical Theater Office, located in Scene Shop, will serve as a base for the Technical Theater Director. With two doors and windows looking onto the shop floor, the students will always have open access to the Technical Theater Director.
Seen as an in-building extension of the larger Crossman Hall kitchen, the Catering Kitchen will serve as the food-prep station for all catered events held in the Grand Lobby of The Marshall Family Performing Arts Center.
Located at the intersection of the Grand Lobby and the Main Gallery, the Front of House Elevator will transfer students, parents and other patrons to the upper level of The Marshall Family Performing Arts Center, providing ease of access to the balcony for all that come to see performances.
The Furniture and Fixtures Room includes space to store a core group of the large stage pieces most commonly used in productions from beds and sofas to chairs and tables. Located on the east side of the building, the room provides easy access to the Proscenium Theater stage.
Located on the east side of the building, the Scenes Room will provide storage for essential set pieces, from backdrops, to building facades, to raw wood, waiting to be turned into the exotic location of the next production.
The Stage Receiving area will be one of the most active areas of the new building as set pieces, building materials, and all other deliveries will move through this space. Located on the east side of the building, Stage Receiving is easily accessible through the campus parking lot and is positioned across the hall from the main Proscenium Theater stage.
The Athletic Field Parking Lot includes 40 parking spaces and offers direct access onto south-bound Midway Road. Surrounded by lush trees, this parking lot will blend into the campus while offering easy access to the athletic events held on the southeast corner of campus.
The Hearth Oven, as its name implies, will sit prominently in the Kitchen just behind the Main Servery. The addition of a Hearth Oven to the Kitchen area will expand the range of culinary options for student lunches and for on-campus events. Additional food options include wood-fired pizza, artisan breads and unique pastries.
The Main Servery includes four hot-and-cold serving stations. With a larger capacity than our current servery, it will reduce the amount of time required to serve students, giving them a longer period of time for dining. The Main Servery will be the hub of the renovated Dining Hall, serving over 1,000 faculty and students each day.
Located on the upper level of The Marshall Family Performing Arts Center, the Costume Room, which spans nearly half the width of the Proscenium Theater, will house and display a complete repertoire of costumes and accessories used in all Center productions.
The Costume Shop will be the main room where all of creative costumes will be made for various productions. The room will hold the supplies, tools and other critical items that will aid costume production.
The Back of House Hallway will serve as the primary passage way on the upper level behind the Proscenium Theater. It will offer access to the Costume Room, Mechanical Rooms, and other storage and technical areas on the upper level of the building.
General storage rooms, located throughout the building, hold the supplies, tools and other critical items that ensure the proper operation of such a large facility. Storage rooms and their contents will be accessed and used daily.
The large Upper Level Dressing Rooms are prominently located off of the Upper Gallery, a short distance from the Dance and Choral Hall. The partitioned room includes ample space for dressing, a bank of lit mirrors for make-up application, and is adjacent to Upper Level restrooms. In these rooms, students will mentally and physically prepare for performances.
The Modular Stands, which will be used during all three sports seasons, will offer seating to parents and families coming to watch their children’s games on the new fields. The flexibility of the stands will allow them to move to different locations to accommodate games on both fields.
