Festival Playhouse – Acoustical Improvements Image

In order to improve acoustical performance for the unamplified natural voice within the Festival Playhouse a reshaping of the reflective and absorptive architectural surfaces was required. The theatrical consulting firm Jones & Phillips, acoustical firm Aercoustics and structural engineering firm THP collaborated on the design of these improvements. They include "clouds" - curved overhead panels above the thrust portion of the stage and moveable "tower panels" located in the ante proscenium side stage areas similar to an orchestra shell. The manufacturing and installation was accomplished after the close of the 2007-2008 theatre season by Rhecors General Contractors and their theatrical specialty subcontractor Secoa.
