As a large enclosed space it can ideally become any type of performance venue, however, it is generally used for large dance and music performances played on the floor. The venue has an end on scaffolding seating rake and a flown steel grid for lighting and masking. The existing raised stage may be used for quick changes, cast members, and props.
