  • Final Theater Form Taking Shape Inside

    Posted by Chris Clonts on 9/7/2020 4:10:00 AM

    The main seating area of the new performing arts center.

    The exterior and interior walls have long been up, but now the new performing arts center's main seating area and production areas are starting to take their final shape. One can see the gradually sloped seating plan.

    Eventually, this space will have 750 seats and state-of-the-art sound and light systems that will help host hundreds of events each year. It is on schedule to be ready for use in the fall of 2021.

    In addition to the latest production amenities, the theater also has many safety features, such as the large smoke-evacuation vents shown below. They can clear the theater of smoke quickly in the event of an emergency.
