The Recital Hall
Noted for fine acoustics, and enhanced by white oak walls and a sprung floor, this theatre was specifically designed for chamber music as well as small dance concerts. It has a rear screen projection bay, an organ, a portable acoustic orchestra shell, and one downstage lift which can be an orchestra pit, additional seating, or an extension of the stage.
The Repertory Theatre
The Repertory Theatre is a “black box” theatre. It provides designers with complete flexibility; virtually any stage configuration is possible. The seating can be created using portable platform units that are stored beneath the deck. The catwalks are movable and there is a 22’ x 40’ hydraulic lift at one end.
