We would like to use Rodney because of the fact that it is a theater space with all that is needed to put on a good performance. We have performed at Varner before and the acoustics there were less than optimal, which didn’t allow our actors to project their voices, the lighting isn’t as good as Rodney’s lighting, and Varner doesn’t have space for actors, sets, costumes, and other things needed for the production. Rodney’s classrooms are basically connected to the auditorium, allowing for actors and actresses to have separate dressing rooms.
