Cutting Hall is a unique facility owned and operated by the Palatine Park District. In 1977, the Park District purchased the former Palatine High School’s Cutting Hall Auditorium. The Park District’s intentions were to restore and preserve Cutting Hall so that area residents could enjoy and participate in community, as well as professional programs in their own community.
The 430-seat auditorium offers a stage, rehearsal room and two dressing rooms for rental. To inquire about rates or for further information, please call 847-991-5318. Cutting Hall is located at 150 E. Wood Street in Palatine.
During the course of the year, the Park District utilizes Cutting Hall for performances by professional and community theater groups, performing arts series for children, the Palatine Park District Presents Series, the Palatine Concert Band and Park District programs including theater, dance, and the Palatine Children’s Chorus.
Cutting Hall offers residents an opportunity to share their talents and resources in the performing arts. The Park District is proud to offer this lively example of the rich heritage which is found in our area. We sincerely hope that you will always enjoy the quality programs presented at Cutting Hall.
When the curtains first opened on the Cutting Hall stage on September 15, 1928, the theater’s appearance was similar to today. The crosswork of beams was hand decorated by Gustave Bandt, one of four artists in the world who did this work. The stage curtain displayed the P.H.S. monogram on a purple and gold drape.
