House & Stage
The George Daily Auditorium comfortably accommodates 695 people with continental seating. We have a proscenium stage, with an opening of 49′x18′ and a 31′ depth from the proscenium arch to the back wall. The floor is softwood throughout the acting space with a hardwood apron, with removable panels to create an orchestra pit. The wing spaces are concrete. There are two 15′x16′ dressing rooms, located at stage right and stage left 8′ from the proscenium opening, complete with full restroom and shower amenities. The backstage consists of an attached black-box theatre measuring 50′ x 28 ½’ and an adjoining scene shop area. The fly system consists of 25 lines and includes 3 electrics, Act curtain, traveler, concert curtain, cyc curtain, sky cyc, and a white scrim capable of flying out to 41′ above the stage. The stage is equipped with three motor points at 3′, 4 ½’, 17′, and 24 ½’ from the plaster line. Behind the theatre, the loading dock and drive are able to accommodate semi trucks. Adjacent to the lobby, a separate reception area contains kitchen and serving resources.
The lighting system is controlled by an ETC Express 48/96 Control Console. It is a computerized board that can do both one- and two-scene presets with ten pages of 24 submasters and preset capabilities for 600 memorized cues. It is housed in the control booth at the rear of the house.
We have one front of house lighting cove in the ceiling and two front of house side pockets. On stage lighting is from three electrics, six drop boxes with 75′ cables, and side floor pockets. The cove lighting contains 32 circuits, the onstage electrics have 16 circuits each arranged in pairs stage right and left, and each drop box has 6 separate circuits. The side pockets for front of house lighting have four circuits each, while the stage has 28 circuits in floor pockets. In a lighting balcony above the control booth, there are three Strong 575 followspots.
