Renovation of the Carl Godwin Auditorium was completed recently. The project was funded in part by a November 2007 bond election.
The renovation included new seating, flooring, and lighting; as well as a state-of-the-art sound and video system. It also included painting, renovations of bathrooms, acoustics, and prop/ dressing rooms.
A new heating and air conditioning system was installed, along with a sound booth, and new stage curtains.
