MPI auditorium under constAuditorium Remodeling Right after the DollHouse strike, with Steve Winslow’s help, we moved all the seats to a POD in the parking lot for temporary storage. Steve Farley pulled up the old carpet and sanded and cleaned the floor and the other wood surfaces. Bill Pauly and I spent the next four weeks rebuilding the platforms to accept the new seats, while Steve Farley and Kim Woods prepped and painted the entire room.

Warren Brown, of Brown Audio Services spent a day installing the hearing loop, and an electrician and Steve pulled out the old wiring and installed the new electric. The carpet was installed in two days by the pros at CJ’s Wholesale Flooring.

Bill and Steve will wire the low voltage LED aisle lights, then our original seats will be put back until Godspell closes.

The final phase of this project is to install our new seats, which is scheduled for the end of July/first week of August, in time for the start of our new season with The Wisdom of Eve.

One challenging part of the new construction was building four rolling platform sections for the “B” row to accommodate wheelchairs. This is necessary to comply with ADA requirements and to give us space for set construction.
