A new theater is in the works at Duquesne University.

The $4.5 million project, to be built at Seitz and Locust streets near the college’s liberal arts school, will feature a black box theater, a rehearsal hall classroom, shop and support spaces, and administrative offices.

It would be the first theater on the Duquesne campus since it moved to the Bluff in 1881, said John Plante, vice president of university advancement.

Duquesne, which will present its plans to the city planning commission Tuesday, hopes to start construction in April and have the one-story complex completed in August 2015. It is being funded through a combination of university capital funds and private gifts.
