Technical Specs

General: The Performance Hall is a recently renovated space on the 2nd floor of the former Hudson City Hall. The house is a rectangular space with a flat floor, and has a rear balcony with a technical booth. The house has large operable double hung windows on either side and at the rear of the balcony; windows have motorized opaque shades but are not full blackout shades. Soft goods are available to create a blackout as needed. The space is heated and air-conditioned.

A raised proscenium stage is located at the north end of the space. The stage floor is raked from back to front. There are operable windows at the rear wall of the stage with full blackout shutters.
