Orchestra Pit

Pit can be accessed from the house via a small staircase or by load in through an underground tunnel.

Capacity: Can hold more than 35 players plus instruments.

Pit has plenty of power, along with audio/video hookups, blue lights and work lights.

When Wenger pit cover is removed a safety net is stretched across the opening with a removable conductor’s hatch.

Stage Features

Main Curtain is Blue Velour.  It is dead hung, and opens from center.

Stage Floor is permanent black dance Marley.  We are unable to drill into the floor so other means of stabilizing are required. (Please contact Technical Director with any questions about weight loads onstage.)
