The False Floor is Removed!

The original floor is now seeing the light of day after almost 60 years! The sloped floor was covered by a false floor in the early 60’s. You can see the original stage (dark mahogany red) emerge above the orchestra pit. 

The next project for the Foundation will be to store the auditorium seats and disassemble the false floor on the stage.
