The Mary Stuart Rogers Theater is an amazing venue that seats up to 1,250 people-- 945 patrons at the orchestra and parterre levels, and 305 patrons in the balcony. The theater accommodates classical music concerts and theater with an audience chamber designed to provide sufficient volume in the hall to develop the degree of reverberation needed for classical music (1.7-1.9 seconds at mid-frequency, occupied). An ability to tune the room acoustics gives a great range of control and choice to theater directors, conductors, and performers.
In keeping with the classical music acoustic objectives, a traditional shoebox shape with maximum width of 97 feet tapers in to approx. 72 feet between the side walls, favorable with respect to directing early sound reflections towards the center portions of the orchestra seating areas.
