New MPI seating to be ready for 2017-2018 season!

New Seating ChartThrough your generous contributions and grants from local Arts organizations, Summerfair and ArtsWave, our auditorium will have brand new seating for the start of the 2017-2018 season. These seats are wider, have greatly improved back support and feature arm rests.

In addition to the new seats, we will add LED aisle lights at each step. For those with hearing loss we will install an audio induction loop system to wirelessly receive the actors’ voices through your own T-coil equipped hearing aid or by borrowing a receiver at our ticket desk. For more information, please check our website: mariemontplayers.com/hearingloop

Auditorium Remodel Update

MPI auditorium under constAuditorium Remodeling Right after the DollHouse strike, with Steve Winslow’s help, we moved all the seats to a POD in the parking lot for temporary storage. Steve Farley pulled up the old carpet and sanded and cleaned the floor and the other wood surfaces. Bill Pauly and I spent the next four weeks rebuilding the platforms to accept the new seats, while Steve Farley and Kim Woods prepped and painted the entire room.

Warren Brown, of Brown Audio Services spent a day installing the hearing loop, and an electrician and Steve pulled out the old wiring and installed the new electric. The carpet was installed in two days by the pros at CJ’s Wholesale Flooring.

Bill and Steve will wire the low voltage LED aisle lights, then our original seats will be put back until Godspell closes.

The final phase of this project is to install our new seats, which is scheduled for the end of July/first week of August, in time for the start of our new season with The Wisdom of Eve.

One challenging part of the new construction was building four rolling platform sections for the “B” row to accommodate wheelchairs. This is necessary to comply with ADA requirements and to give us space for set construction.
