An Oct. 25 performance by the Tacoma Symphony Orchestra was the first event held on the renovated stage at the Pantages Theater in downtown Tacoma.

Korsmo Construction spent six months beefing up the theater's structure, expanding the stage, replacing structural roof supports and remodeling the backstage area. The Tacoma-based contractor did the job for about $2 million.

The larger stage allows theater operator Broadway Center for the Performing Arts to host bigger shows. The remodeled backstage has more storage space and new dressing rooms, allowing for quieter and more efficient backstage operations.

BCRA of Tacoma was the architect.

Korsmo's project manager was Steve Rich and its superintendent was James Abel.

Korsmo last year lifted the orchestra pit and renovated catwalks at the nearly century-old theater owned by the city of Tacoma.
