A small mezzanine level rehearsal room, accessible by the north hallway elevator and emergency stairs is available for additional dressing or rehearsal space.
Pease is equipped with a standard public address sound system and lighting track, which is capable of accommodating most events that are held in the auditorium. House sound is designed for speaking and light background music, of up to 6 audio channels. For larger shows, please contact us for reputable sound vendors who are familiar with our venue.
Lighting is provided by balcony front rail lights - eight pairs of PAR 64 provide variable wash light, and two pair of Shakespeare ellipsoidals can provide specials. Lights are controlled backstage from a built-in panel, or from the back of house with a DMX controlled ED Minstrel Plus board.
