Earlier this summer, we had to close the main Walton Arts Center building after our engineers identified structural issues on the roof of Baum Walker Hall. These engineers were planning for the upcoming expansion and renovation of our facilities when they discovered the issues.
The expansion of Walton Arts Center was set in place to maintain a quality facility that met the needs of larger touring productions. To do so, we needed to install steel trusses that would meet the requirements for greater rigging capabilities.
The Box Office had to move to a temporary location in Nadine Baum Studios due to the construction, and our staff was relocated to offices around the area. We are very happy that the Box Office will be moving back to their home offices tomorrow, and the expansion and renovation of Walton Arts Center will be completed before we kick off of our 2014-15 Season on September 28.
