New carpet is currently being installed in the SURC Pit over winter break. This fresh new look will be completed just in time for the new year.
The Ballroom is getting a lighting and equipment makeover. The new front of house stage lighting truss will consist of two motorized triangular trusses with a center section that can be connected between the two flying trusses. Each flying stage lighting truss will have stage lighting circuits/distribution which will run back to a new stage lighting dimming and control system. All lights will be LED to allow for an increased flexibility with our productions. In addition to the motorized stage lighting trusses, we will be adding basic stage lighting design to light a 32’ wide portable stage platform.
We will also be adding three additional projectors and two additional screens attached to the ceiling. These enhancements would allow the Ballroom to have better sight lines for shows, more efficient use of space, and address a few safety issues.
This project will be complete in January 2014.
