Located on the West side of Taylor between Eddy & Ellis, 2 blocks from the Powell St. BART Station, this 66 seat, black box space is around the corner from the Eddy Steet. theatreplex. The house is street level and wheel-chair accessible.
With curtains in full use, playing space is approximately 17 feet wide by 12 feet deep with ample wing space Stage Left and moderate wing space Stage Right. The curtains can be opened to make the performance space larger and thw wing space smaller. The bare back wall is black. Be aware theat the main door from the lobby Stage Right into the space allows for entrances directly onto the stage (and thus, extra "wing space"). The first row of the audience is at stage level and will partially define the DS playing edge.
Entrances directly to stage can be made Stage Left, Up Stage Right by way of the back hall, or through the main lobby doors.
The grid is about 14 feet above the stage. There is no fly-space. While the floor is wood, the wall are sheet rock so attachments are limited. You may not hang items or compromise the stage in any way without prior approval.
Dressing Room and Storage
Dressing Room Holds 5-6 comfortably and is located off the north east corner. This room is at the end of a common hallway, past the washrooms, and near the USL stage entrance. The room has room for a small prop table, ample mirror and counter space and includes its own shower stall and sink. Performers will share general washroom facilities with patrons. There is no monitor system, but stage noise will be heard in the dressing room.
Located on the northwest corner of the theatre, the booth provides an adequate view of the entire playing space. With a simple audio monitor (for stage noise) in the booth, it is well sound proofed. Windows can not be opened for ventilation, but a fan is provided. Access is through a second door from the street - making it wheel chair accessible, though a few steps up from house level.
Sound: (1) dual-deck tape deck, (2) single disc CD players, an 12 channel Behringer mixing board allowing for cross fades, live mic hook-up or instrument amplification. There are 2 speakers dead-hung from the lighting grid in the corners of the east wall of the stage that allow isolation up (right) and down (left) through the mixer.
Lights: The board is a Leprecon 12 channel MANUAL 2 scene preset. Cues
may be cross-faded manually or run as internals. There is an independent
channel, add/bump buttons and a chaser. The house lights are on a separate
dimmer next to the board.
