Iroquois Middle School - Auditorium and Stage

GRHC - 2008

The large auditorium has the original wooden seats with arm rests connected by cast metal supports. The stage has only a few narrow supports, topped with architectural detail, blocking the view. The walls feature decorative embellishments. On either side of the stage are emergency exit doors. The large white apparatus that hangs above the stage conceals stage lights. On the left side of the stage is an American flag, stairs to the proscenium, and a piano on the floor.
