Join us at the Brooks School in North Andover, Massachusetts on Saturday, June 29th  for a tour of their new theatre and a picnic!  

The Brooks School opened their new Center for the Arts in November. The Mainstage Theatre features an ETC Foundation HD Rigging Controller with variable and fixed speed winches, along with manual winches, installed by Port Lighting. The lighting control system is an ETC Ionxe, installed by Barbizon New England. They have LED lighting throughout, with ETC backpacks for incandescent units. The building design is by Ann Beha Architects, and the theatre consultant was Tony Forman at NextStage Design.
