Note:
One of the first modernist buildings in Raleigh to exemplify the clean, rectilinear forms of the International Style, the white-painted brick building was constructed with WPA funds for the newly founded local theatre group. Deitrick donated initial designs, which were redefined in the final design by Thad Hurd of the building committee. Raleigh architect Brian Shawcroft planned additions in keeping with the original design.
