After a complete remodel over the summer that livened up the auditorium, it seems as though the auditorium is going to need another makeover. The vibrant red and gold carpet, emblematic of our school spirit, is peeling off of the steps to which it is attached. This left most steps in the lobby and the balconies with only a portion of the design left still in its original position.
The separation had become a tripping hazard until the carpet and its accompanying black hinges that reinforced its fusion with the steps were forcibly removed, leaving every single stair scarred with splotches of carpet where the adhesive holding it in place was strong enough to stay.
Evidently, the carpet on the steps was installed in pieces, with each strip only connected to another by that black hinge, instead of one single piece, which had caused these pieces to unexpectedly detach in the week before Back to School Night. Instead of displaying to the parents the grandeur and beauty of the new theater’s renovation that night, Mr. Eick, who manages the auditorium as the Visual and Performing Arts Department Chair, had to explain to them that, despite the recent redecoration, the lobby and balconies would again have to be fixed.
The administration has been made aware of this problem and has stated that the repairs that need to be made will be made in a timely fashion; however, no specific time frame was given. But Mr. Eick is optimistic on the administration’s speed.
“I believe that they can and will get it done by the first show, ‘Cash on Delivery,’ by the end of the month,” Mr. Eick said.
