Dublin High School’s Center for Performing Arts and Education Photo Tour

March 8, 2014

In just a few months there will be a major ribbon-cutting at Dublin High School. As part of the multi-year, taxpayer funded Dublin High School renewal project, a brand new, state-of-the-art Center for Performing Arts and Education will open in support of visual and performing arts programs. Most of the major construction is now complete with the attention now on completely all the detail work. Superintendent Dr. Stephen Hanke: “When we designed the theatre we ensured it would have all the elements of a high quality regional theatre, and it does. It is a magnificent facility. Not only will the school district benefit from the programs we have, but we will also see benefits extend into the Dublin community and regionally.”

Take a few minutes and join on a photo tour of the new theater:

If you’ve driven up Village Parkway in the past six months, you will have seen the theater taking shape on the north side of campus:

Stepping inside the theater, you are welcomed by tiered seating with capacity just shy of 500.

On the expansive stage, which has a capacity for 179 performers (needed due to the dramatic expansion of the music program at Dublin High School), there is a fly (rigging) system that will enable multiple productions to be mounted simultaneously, an orchestra pit (on an elevator system), extensive backstage facilities for set storage and construction and a state-of-the-art control room. Students working backstage will gain real-world experience with the tools they would use in a professional production.

The theater is the most visible element of the project, but equally impressive is the classroom space that includes a band room (with extensive storage space and modern acoustic treatments), soundproofed practice rooms (with the ability to adjust acoustics to mimic different types of venues), a choir room, a theatre practice room, and facilities for audio-visual classes including a green screen production facility and control room and a large classroom. Outside the theatre and classrooms there is an expansive open space that will be a new meeting place for students.
