Johnson Theatre

Johnson Theatre Johnson Theatre is a proscenium theatre seating 281 on the main level and 50 in the balcony in a continental plan (no center aisle).  The proscenium opening is 37' wide by 22' high.  The stage extends 33' upstage of the plasterline with an additional 16' downstage of the plasterline when the orchestra pit is covered.  The stage floor is partially sprung with a composition board covering.  Digital sound and lighting control rooms are located at the rear of the auditorium.  A Telex communication system links the control rooms, box office, fly gallery, grid, stage manager positions stage left and right, orchestra pit, scene and costume studios, green room, dressing and makeup rooms.  Below the stage are storage areas for furniture. In 2006 we installed a new sound mixing board in the all-digital sound booth.  In 2007, we installed a new grand drape.  In 2010, we added more sound circuits to the stagehouse.
