Hall Facilities and Specifications

The proscenium rises 30 feet and measures 36 feet from edge to edge – its arch, like the opera boxes, is finished with ornate plasterwork and glittering gold leaf. The stage floor, constructed with the resilience essential to dance performances, measures 35 feet from proscenium arch to back wall. A fixed orchestra pit is located 8 feet below stage level. In addition, an orchestra pit filler is available which will increase seating to 1,058. The loading dock with double load-in doors accommodates traveling shows or large scale video production equipment.

The performers’ quarters accommodate up to 32 people and provide a showers, a green room, and a catering/rehearsal space.
