The Alumnae MainStage is a traditional black box theatre, fully air-conditioned with 140 seats. Rentals include lighting and sound equipment, use of the dressing rooms and lobby and box office. Stage dimensions are 32.5' wide, 28' deep and 16'2" to grid. Box office/technical staff are not included.
Please note: The depth of the stage is 28' from the front of the stage to the back wall. However, we offer a full sych which provides a convenient upstage cross for the actors; with it the depth of the stage is reduced to approximately 25'.
The Alumnae Studio is located in the attic of the theatre and is not air-conditioned. Both the seating risers and the stage can be reconfigured (extra charge). Maximum capacity is 80 seats. The stage is 20' deep and 25' wide. The Studio features open wooden beams and large windows that can be hidden or exposed - it is ideal for smaller independent productions. Rentals include lighting and sound equipment, use of the dressing rooms located on the second floor, lobby and box office. Box office/technical staff are not included.
The MainStage lighting feed is 200 amperes single phase, i.e., 400 amps at 120 volts or 48 kilowatts (balanced load). The Studio also has a 200 amperes lighting service. It is split to two 100 amp disconnects, one on each side of the room. The full 200 amperes is available at the splitter on the east wall.
