Renovations were recently completed on the Shea theatre. There is a large, open lobby
that will very comfortably accommodate a capacity audience. The house seats 427 in
comfortable, high back seats in a stadium, continental arrangement. Sight lines for
all seats are exceptionally good. Acoustics in the house are generally very good.
The stage is an 80-foot open platform. Part of the renovation was installation of a new counterweight stage rigging system. Three levels of newly constructed dressing room have easy access to the stage.
The lighting and sound are modern computer controlled systems.

The scene shop is completely equipped with woodworking tools plus three different types of welding equipment.
The costume shop is fully equipped with an industrial dye vat and all manner of stitching equipment.
