This 671-seat multi-purpose performing arts center for the community and the school system features a full orchestra pit, full fly loft, orchestra shell, and associated music and drama rehearsal rooms. Backstage support includes scene shop, green room, and large and small dressing rooms with self-contained makeup and costume storage. The facility opened with a series of dedication performances that featured all of the district's musical and dramatic groups. They sold out so quickly that the school was forced to add performances to the schedule.
This project was the subject of a 2001 article in American School & University magazine, authored by project design architect Fred Gore. See article here .
