More than AVL
The theater also features a traditional counter-weight line set system with fully operational fly rail, grid system and loading bridge for the flying of lighting, soft-goods and scenic elements. The fly space at O'Fallon High School features over (30) counterweight line-sets. In addition, the two main front light positions over the seating area were fully motorized. The stage area is outfitted with theatrical masking legs and borders, CYC curtains, scrims, traveler tracks, and a main grand drape.
The space also features two completely functional control areas to suit the needs of the various activities in the space and the needs of touring or community events visiting the space. The main control booth is in the back with spotlight positions above the ceiling. A secondary control location is located at the center aisle of the theater. That location is outfitted with a customized mobile counter top giving the location a finished look and has multiple custom splitters, mass connectors, and panels to allow access to everything from the second position that is accessible from the rear location.
Paragon 360 also consulted on the over-all design of the space speaking into everything from seating layout to backstage space, scene shop and more.
