Gundaker Theater

 
The Gundaker Theater is named in memory of the late Mrs. Donna Gundaker, wife of CBC alumnus Gordon Gundaker ’53. The theater has seating for 358, and an 18-foot high by 48-foot wide proscenium with a 38 foot by 71 foot thrust stage. The front edge of the stage surface can be removed to increase exposure of the musicians in the orchestra pit. The theater features a fly loft that is more than 60-foot high. Acoustical treatment includes absorptive wood panels, suspended reflector panels, and diffusion blocks.

Special acoustic design elements, coupled with the digital sound system, bring the stage to life. A catwalk system allows production assistants the ability to move about the facility during production.
