Swine Palace Theater
Coleman Partners Architects, LLC has completed renovations to the historically significant Old Livestock Judging Pavilion at LSU located at the south end of the LSU Campus. The building serves as the home of Louisiana's only professional theater company, Swine Palace Productions. The Old Livestock Judging Pavilion has been renovated into a unique theater setting which features many of the historically significant characteristics of the original Livestock Judging Pavilion. The design challenge was to faithfully restore the building, maintaining the historically significant characteristics, while making the building a suitable home for a contemporary, professional theater company. The renovations were financed by a combination of public funds as well as a generous donation made by the Reilly family of Baton Rouge and other private donors.
