|Radford Auditorium Improvements
Texas Scenic Company has recently completed a $250,000 renovation project making major improvements to the fly and lighting systems as well as purchasing new scenic draperies in Radford Auditorium. This will greatly enhance our ability to produce quality productions in that facility. We currently produce the annual homecoming musical and occasional student-directed productions in Radford.
Tap Dance at McMurry
Thirty one students are already enrolled for this spring’s tap dance class with master dance teacher and choreographer Teri Wilkerson.Ü We have recently acquired the rights to produce the newly released musical Thoroughly Modern Millie this summer, so many of these new tappers will have the opportunity to strut their stuff.
A New Step Toward Restoration of the Old Main Theatre
McMurry University recently purchased three buildings close to campus that formerly belonged to New Life Ministries just across from Jefferson Middle School. It is the intention of the University to move materials currently stored in the Old Main Auditorium and in the former maintenance building (currently used for theatre storage) next to the tennis courts to the new storage facilities. Once funding becomes available the plan is to turn the old maintenance building into offices and locker rooms for tennis. It is our theatre department’s desire to renovate the Old Main Auditorium for use as an additional rehearsal/performance space and a studio for multi-media work.
