Considered to be one of the finest concert halls in North America, the Community Auditorium offers some of the best acoustics in the world... The architects and designers created a warm and intimate environment that is both technologically advanced and versatile. The concert ceiling canopy may be raised or lowered, the orchestra pit lifts may be used to extend the stage into the audience chamber, lowered to accommodate additional seats, or dropped down to create an orchestra or dance pit. Fourteen large rolling panels may be used to create an orchestra shell, and larger banners and draperies covering the inner walls can be moved and adjusted to soften or liven the sound.

 

In addition to these theatre configurations and acoustic variables, the TBCA maintains state-of-the-art sound, lighting and theatre systems equipment to fulfill the range of requirements large touring companies and local performers alike. The stage can also be set up as its own cabaret style venue for more intimate performances with tables and chairs on stage around a smaller stage set-up. The TBCA's Marketing and Development Department and Box Office are also available to assist in promoting and selling any event or performance.
