Matt and Gene were commissioning theater rigging and lighting equipment earlier this week at the new Whitinsville Christian School Fine Arts Center. Nextstage Design provided theater planning and equipment design as part of the design build team. The theater equipment was provided by PDO under separate contract to the owner. The new facility has a Wenger acoustic shell and AcouROLL banners to provide an adjustable acoustic environment for performances by the school’s multiple chorus, band, and string ensembles. The drama and musical theater productions of the middle and high schools are served by an ETC motorized rigging system with a QuickTouch+ controller. All house and concert lighting fixtures have LED sources with full dimming through an ETC Paradigm control system. Performance lighting is a mix of conventional and LED sources, controlled by an ETC Ion console. The new venue will also be used for chapel, convocation, and other gatherings of the school community.
