Watch out for flying students at new California high school theater
The new Corona del Mar High School Theatre, in Newport Beach, Calif., will house a 350-seat main auditorium, small black box theater, scene shop, green room, and dressing rooms, as well as instrumental and choral classrooms. A tension grid system will be used, rather than a large fly loft over the stage, which will enable student thespians to fly above the audience or stage. McCarthy Building Companies of Newport Beach is the construction manager for the Newport-Mesa Unified School District project, which has been designed to achieve LEED Silver by Irvine-based architecture firm LPA.
