• C. Walsh Theatre Reopens with New Look

11/27/2006

Phase one of the C. Walsh Theatre renovations are complete, and, based on early reviews, the project deserves a standing ovation.

“We have received an overwhelming positive response from everyone within the Suffolk community and beyond,” said Theatre Department General Manager Jim Kaufman.  “Students, faculty and staff have been excited and impressed with everything the University has accomplished.  I even had a mother and daughter from Germany stop in to the theater recently on their visit to Suffolk and they kept commenting on how beautiful it is.”

Renovations include new first floor seating, house lighting and carpeting; improved infrastructure for sound, light and media use; an expanded lobby with a level floor; and a new, accessible bathroom, control room and storage area.

“The renovation not only provides a stunning showcase for a wide range of University activities and performances, but has created the technical infrastructure to allow us to meet the demands of the University’s ambitious educational mission,” said Theatre Department Chair Marilyn Plotkins.

She said that Phase Two of the renovation project is in the planning stages.
