Chapman University, Marybelle and Sebastian P. Musco Center for the Arts
We helped to design incredible versatility into the multipurpose theatre at the heart of the Musco Center. The room features a large stage, a full fly tower, two orchestra lifts, and high-tech LED performance lighting, dimming, and relay systems, allowing the university to stage ambitious and highly technical student and traveling shows.
To accommodate full flying capability for the orchestra shell, we designed specialty hoist machinery and carefully coordinated grid slots to lift and store the shell, which demounts, separates, and flies into the stage house in less than an hour. Additionally, the Musco Center features nine dressing rooms, green rooms, and a state-of-the-art recording studio, tailored to the education of audio engineering students, featuring cutting-edge AV and Internet2 technology.
