The Center for the Performing Arts at Menlo-Atherton High School
The Center for Performing Arts is a state-of-the-art, multi-discipline performing arts space designed for community and professional use. Since it opened in October of 2009, it has housed dance, theater and musical performances of all types and skill levels. It is on the campus of Menlo-Atherton High School.
A few highlights:
A professional caliber fly tower measuring approximately 100 feet wide by 50 feet deep by 65 feet high is equipped with 36 counter-weighted manila line-sets, which are manually operated to raise and lower scenery.
An orchestra lift is available to convert the stage for opera or musical stage productions, or to extend the audience seating area.
The stage and the forestage area have been designed to accommodate a full symphony orchestra or an 80 piece band.
Special construction consisting of multiple layers of plaster, cavity walls, and isolation of potential sources of vibration or noise has been employed to ensure professional quality acoustical performance.
The proscenium opening is 50 feet wide by 29 feet high with a removable portal opening which will reduce the proscenium dimension to 36 feet wide by 26 feet high for dramatic performances.
