The State School stage, taken as it was getting scrapped.
Lacy hated playing for people. She wanted to make the piano speak back to her, not make people stare.
Looking up at the remodeled projection booth from the small stage.
A scene on the balcony.
2015. Water damage hastens the decay of the annex and its stage. Every time I visit this room, the chairs are in different places. Kodak Portra 400 in a Voigtlander Bessa.
2005. The stage in front of the cafeteria, as it was.
It’s a straight view from the projection booth to the stage, but hell of a walk. At a fast pace, I think it would take 10 minutes to walk from this spot to the chair. Behind the curtains is a big white screen, so the theatre could be used for either stagework or moving pictures. The two projectors are set up for 3D movies right now–hence the little switch below the window–a Polaroid 3D synchronizer. Cool, huh?
This is the original projection booth space, but it has been remodeled a bit to accommodate mixing boards and other live performance equipment. Before the theatre was separated to accommodate two stages, this would overlook two balconies, the house, and the main stage.
The house of the NorShor is surprisingly large, even divided in half. It seems unthinkable that this stage has been empty for so long.
