Please note that the doors that go in and out of the gym are 35 inches wide and 80 inches high.  Check you set pieces to make sure that they will go though this door size.  We ask that sets go in through the main elementary door and set exit out the boys locker room door to aid in the flow of the day.  There will be areas in the gym to keep some set items if need.  Areas will be assigned.


A stage diagram is enclosed as well as light we have on the stage.  We do not have dimmers on lights so they are on or off.  We do have foot lights that work on three switches so that light can be built from dim to bright.  White over head lights in the first row above the stage and these lights are on three switches so the can be built from dim to light.  The rear above lights are red, blue, and white lights are in the second row and each color has its own switch.  I have included location of curtain breaks and outlets on the stage to aid you in your stage entrances.  We do have one follow spot with colors.  Please let me know if there is anything that I can do so that you team feels comfortable on our stage.


Schools will use the locker rooms that are off the stage and will be asked to remove their items prior to their plays start so that other schools can get ready.  

We will have a concession stands and I will contact you at a later date with more details.  Our main food items will be pizza and we would like to put in a preorder to ensure that we have enough on hand for all.


Please respond to this email to ensure that all information has gotten out to the respective schools.


If you have questions, please email or call.  My school number is 308-346-4150.  My office hours are from 1:40-3:15.  


Break a leg as you prepare for the contest season.
