Backstage The Music Hall’s production staff continues to work with 19th and 20th century systems in the mounting and presenting of shows. The theater’s stage is short the 13 feet required to present the greatest variety performances. The hand-operated wood and hemp staging system is more than 100 years old, and critical sound, electrical, and HVAC systems are badly in need of replacement. Because of our antique systems, shows at The Music Hall are mounted at four times the effort and physical strain extended by production staffs at more modernized theaters. Throughout The Music Hall, space, preservation and technology needs must be met or the physical limitations will become increasingly a risk to the business.
