Orchestra Pit

The stage is normally configured with a sectional apron which houses the PA system sub-woofer boxes.

However, the apron can be lowered to house floor level to allow for dancing or additional seating. Alternatively, the apron can be completely removed to create a sub-floor level orchestra pit. The floor of the pit is 5' 1" below stage level and can have an optional front wall. The usable space is 46’ by 9’6” at the center tapering to about 3’ at either side.

In either case the sub-woofers must be relocated to the stage or removed entirely.
