Production Info & Technical Specs

Meeting Rooms

Located on the river level below the Theatre are two meeting rooms. Mayor Cockrell Room 004 opens onto the River Arcade at the Convention Center with a capacity of 290 in 4,300 sq-ft. Juan O' Gorman Room 005 is located within the building and a capacity of 170 in 2,500 sq-ft. Served by public restrooms and a small catering pantry, these rooms are ideally suited for receptions, as supplemental meeting rooms, and overflow seating.

This lower level is also the location of a spacious Green Room and seven Dressing Rooms. These latter include two large chorus-size rooms, four smaller principal rooms, and one room dedicated for handicap access. Back-of-house support on this level also includes a laundry and audio-visual support space.

The Main Stage

The main stage is a clear 113 feet wide and 60 feet deep with a proscenium opening of 55’-6” wide by 30’-0” feet tall. The stage apron extends 5’-10’’ downstage of the fire pocket. The Orchestra Pit is 8’-0” deep in a half-oval shape. It is 62 feet wide at the sides and 15’ -10” deep at center. A portable pit-filler platform system extends completely across the pit to extend the stage apron. The platform may be completely removed to expose the Orchestra Pit or used at the Auditorium floor level at approximately 4’-1” below stage level. The stage technical systems consist of an integrated performance audio system, audio-video infrastructure for cameras and projectors, a fully networked stage and architectural lighting system, and a complement of manually-operated counterweight line sets with motorized stage electrics. The details of these systems are outlined in specific detail below. The loading dock is at stage level with two 16’ x 16’ loading doors. Access to docks is off of Market Street via a driveway pass through the Grand Hyatt Hotel.
