"Little Mermaid" preparation to start

CHS auditorium near completion


January 16, 2020

The balcony view shows the transformed auditorium of the Colfax High School Tuesday.

Drama/play production classes will resume Jan. 16 at Colfax Junior-Senior High School as the remodeling of the auditorium is near complete. The annual production, delayed from the traditional November shows, will be "The Little Mermaid," staged for the first time in Colfax.

Much larger lockers, left, are one feature of the changes at the junior-senior high school.

"I think the public is really going to enjoy the auditorium, it has a definite WOW factor," said Jerry Pugh, Colfax superintendent.

Small items remain such as painting and training on the new audio system.

Jeff Stroman, a field engineer from Electronic Theater Controls, headquartered in Middleton, Wis., is on site this week setting up the new lighting system/controls.

"The same gear that's here is on Broadway," Stroman said.

The auditorium also features all new seats of varying widths.

The auditorium project is phase three of the overall $18.9 million bond-funded construction underway at the school district.
