Civic Center Progress Photos

We're excited to show you the progress on the renovations to Porter Auditorium! The crew is hard at work, specifically laying the foundation for the expansion of the backstage area.

The Carroll Daniel Construction crew is hard at work tearing up the current parking lot to expand the backstage area of the theatre!

The inside of the theatre is being gutted and prepared for new acoustical ceiling clouds and battens.

The former classrooms/bathrooms have been cleared out to make way for the new lobby and concession area.
