Attached to Clayton High School, the performing arts center can accommodate audiences of up to 748 people. Seventy ETC Source Four colorchanging LED lighting fixtures allow a wide variety of looks to be created on our forty-foot by twentyeight-foot proscenium stage. Fully-equipped male and female dressing rooms, each with their own lavatory, are located off stage-right while an easy access loading dock / staging area is located off stage-left. Our rigging system allows you to tailor the performance space from a large-scale production to an intimate stage with the ability to fly in backdrops from above or as curtains from either side of the stage.
And then there is the sound. Controlled by a Harman Soundcraft digital mixing board, our speaker arrays will deliver crisp highs and midrange vocals through 8 speakers and deep rumbling bass through two 1,000 watt subwoofers. In addition to the three choir microphones hung over the stage and the assortment of wired microphones that we have available as part of your rental, you will also have access to 2 wireless handheld vocal microphones and 6 wireless bodypacks with your choice of either lavalier or head worn performance elements.
Finally, the Clayton Performing Arts Center is fully capable of handling your presentation needs with a high-lumen HD digital projector that is capable of projecting on to a motorized screen in front of the main curtain or on to our cyclorama at the back of the stage. Your laptop or digital device can be plugged into the VGA or HDMI jacks located at the soundboard or at the stage whichever best suits your needs.
