The new 176,000sf Dover High School delivers modern, high-performance learning environments in a classically styled, community-landmark setting – the key design goal derived from the district’s extensive community engagement and educational visioning processes. HMBA served as the Theater, Acoustical and AV technology systems consultants for the new 1,200 seat theater space. The theater includes a full-fly system with motorized and counterweight rigging systems, state-of-the-art stage lighting and audio-video systems, an orchestra pit, multiple front of house lighting catwalks, an audio house mix control position and stage lighting control / followspot booth. The new theater also includes a removable orchestra shell system with both tip/fly ceiling clouds and rolling side/rear orchestra towers. The theater opened in December 2020.
