Phase I of the project will focus on stage rigging, lighting, and sound systems, and is scheduled to start in June of 2017, with most of the work taking place over the summer.
The original 1920 counter balancing stage rigging needs replacement to meet modern operational needs and safety standards. We currently have 40 lines sets and have proposed to go to 34 to meet todays safety standards for distance between the sets for clearances.
Stage lighting and dimming will be replaced to enhance performance requirements and provide energy efficiency to meet current energy conservation guidelines.
The sound system will be upgraded to enrich the acoustical performance of the space.
