The performance stage is thirty feet wide by twenty five feet deep with 30 feet of height. In addition there is a stage-wing that is nine foot six inch wide, by eighteen feet deep with twelve feet of height behind the main curtain on stage-left. House monitor position occupies this area with ample room for an additional monitor mix setup of similar size in this area as well. The Stage load-in door is on the upstage left rear wall of the building in the stage-left wing area. There is a twenty six foot wide by twenty six foot tall white Cyclorama hanging against the rear wall. This is a fixed position and does not fly out.
Directly downstage from the Cyc is a twenty six foot wide by twenty six foot tall black curtain that splits in the center, is on track and can open to twenty four feet wide and when fully closed has fifty percent fullness.
The FSB does not fly out.
Two feet downstage from the FSB is the upstage truss (truss hang point is forty eight inches off rear wall).
Five feet downstage from Upstage truss (This is directly above the mid-line of the stage) there is a thirty foot wide by six foot deep black border curtain that has a bottom trim of twenty one feet. There are two mid-stage legs, on track, on the same plane as the border that extend from the stage walls to eight feet off stage center.
There is space and point’s available for your 24 ft truss at midstage.
Company power disconnects, transformer isolated stage power, DMX connections, LAN jacks, work light switches, main snake head and audio and video projector feeds are wall mounted in the stage-left wing area as well.

Stage entry for the artists is through a door downstage-right corner of the stage. The dressing rooms, which are located on the roof are accessed via a stairwell through that door. The “Main curtain” is fixed and is a twenty nine foot wide stage opening. It does not close, fly or guillotine. The bottom of the Venetian contour (tormentor) is trimmed at approximately 22 feet above stage and does not move.
