UIS Performing Arts Center Renovations
Plans for the intimate UIS Studio Theatre located on the first floor of the Public Affairs Center include an all new seating system providing wider chairs and better sight lines along with a more intimate feel to the space overall. Upgrades will also occur to the lighting and sound system. Finally, a new high-intensity projections system and movie screen are being added to allow feature films to be shown. Renovations are underway with completion expected by Labor Day weekend.
Bryan Rives, director of UIS Performing Arts Services says “It was important to us for the Studio Theatre to be a priority in our renovation plans as it is most used by our students including the UIS Theatre program which has now grown to providing a Theatre major degree. We always want our students to have access to modern facilities and equipment as they begin their careers.”
Facilities & Technology is a Reaching Stellar priority...
