Walter Johnson High School

Bethesda, MD

Client: Samaha Associates

Completion Date: 2007

Part of the 21,000SF, award winning renovation and new construction project, the Walter Johnson High School features a completely renovated theater space. Having hosted fall drama and spring musical productions since 1957, this 1500 seat theater has set the standard for all subsequent theater renovation projects scheduled by Montgomery County. Working closely with the County and the project design team, Polysonics served as the principal theater consultant for the project, responsible for all production elements and the acoustical envelope of the space. Specific disciplines designed and specified by Polysonics include: Interior acoustics, ceiling layout & design, performance audio system design, video projection and IMAG system design, theater lighting, theater rigging and curtain specifications. The sound systems were designed to compliment the sculpted acoustics of the space, providing excellent intelligibility, while providing a room that is both musical and capable of multi-purpose use.
