After the spring musical “Curtains” closes, the CCCHS theater will also be closing.

At the end of March, the theater will be receiving some much-needed TLC with many renovations. Those renovations include new seats, flooring, a new sound system, and possibly a more permanent orchestra pit.

The theater will also be receiving a new sound system and high-quality wireless microphones thanks to a sponsorship from Peoples Bank.

Principal Paul Parsley states that a big motivation in the decision was the years of wear and tear of the seating and flooring.

He hopes that the new sound system will enhance future theater productions and events.

“We are fortunate to have school district funding available from the federal government’s ESSER funds so that meeting our theater flooring and seating needs can become a reality,” stated Parsley. 

Assistant Principal Megan Hardy believes that the changes will make the theater more inviting and comfortable for guests. She also hopes that the renovations will make a great first impression for the guests.

The renovations are “something that’s been worked on for several, several years,” stated director of the theater program Jonathan Higdon.

Ever since taking over the program, he has been working to improve outdated equipment and limited supplies.

Like many, Higdon is very excited for the upcoming renovations.
