Capital Campaign: Renovated Theatre Unveiled
On Sunday, September 28, Maryland Hall unveiled the first phase of our renovated theatre at a presentation and performance attended by donors, members and community leaders. The evening included performances by the Annapolis Chorale and musicians and dancers from the Annapolis Opera, Annapolis Symphony Orchestra, Ballet Theatre of Maryland and Chesapeake Youth Symphony Orchestra.
As the 2014-15 fall performing arts season unfolds, audiences will find new, comfortable seats with more legroom, parterre seating (box-style) for a unique perspective, improved acoustics and lighting, and a greater floor incline for better sight lines to the stage. Additional stage elements – an orchestra pit, stage extension and stage risers – showcase performers in new and exciting ways. The eight majestic windows have been beautifully restored and have operable acoustic shutters to perhaps allow sunlight into the theatre... for the first time in decades.
