Consigli Completes New Performing Arts Center
The Eagle Hill School in Hardwick, MA, and Consigli Construction Co., Inc. have completed the Cultural Center at Eagle Hill. The center is a 43,000-square-foot facility that will make the school a destination for premier performances from both community players and national sensations. The Cultural Center houses the Abby Theatre, a 457-seat proscenium theatre that features high-end acoustical sound and stage communication systems, green room and dressing rooms for performers, cinema-quality projection system, wireless microphones, and a steeply raked house that allows all patrons to become a part of the performance. Among other performance areas, the Kresge Studio Theatre stands out as a flexible space that utilizes portable risers, an overhead grid theatrical lighting system, and a catwalk system on all walls that can be used for both technical and theatrical purposes. The Cultural Center also includes a 500-seat dining and function hall, art exhibition spaces, classrooms and computer labs for visual and graphic arts, a music classroom and recording studio, a 2,000-square-foot woodshop, 900 square feet of art studio space, reception areas, an outdoor patio, and an outdoor amphitheater.
