Physical Plant

The stage floor is oiled maple, sprung on a three layer basket weave, constructed and finished to ADG guidelines. Nothing may be attached to the floor in any way, and care must be taken in order to avoid damage to the surface.

The stage is surrounded by a permanent acoustical shell, with three sets of double doors on each side providing access to the wings. The clouds may be removed for theatrical performances.

The rigging system consists of 15 variable speed winch driven line shafts controlled by a JR Clancy Altus control system. Three of the lines are dedicated electrics, one is committed for a cyclorama, and seven are committed for masking or clouds, leaving four for company use.

The slate gray Main Curtain and Valance is usually in place for theatrical events and implies a proscenium of 24 feet by 40 feet. There are two sets of black legs and borders available, with a maximum trim of 22 feet. The width of the legs is variable and both legs and borders may be rigged flat or with fullness. One blackout traveler with sewn-in fullness is available as well as a white cyc.

Two private dressing rooms with showers and toilets are available, one of which is fully accessible. Two 14 person community dressing rooms, with showers and toilets are also available.
