Phase 1: Accomplished!
Phase 1 of the auditorium renovation, completed between 2006 – 2008, included replacing the torn and decrepit stage curtains; replacing/upgrading the worst of the auditorium’s broken and torn seats; purchasing a new portable dance floor and sound system, both of which can be brought out and used when they are needed; purchasing much-needed stage lighting; and building a locked cabinet for Tech’s grand piano.
Individuals, Foundations, the Oakland School District and State of California contributed $125,000 to make the improvements in Phase 1.
Phase 2 of the auditorium renovation plan is scheduled to run from 2009 – 2011. It includes making any necessary repairs to the rigging, purchasing and installing a sound system, making desperately needed acoustic enhancements, upgrading the dimmer board and lighting instruments, constructing a sound and lighting booth, installing a backstage monitoring system, painting the auditorium, and painting the lobby and creating a gallery space/showcase for Tech’s visual arts students and for the gorgeous posters for Tech’s drama productions and photos from performing arts productions over the years.
