SkyDeck on the way to Berry College!

Back in 2017, we wrote about the new 4,000 ft2 SkyDeck™ in Berry College’s Sisters Theatre. The addition was part of the Blackstone Hall expansion.  (Construction was completed in June, 2017.) With seating for up to 276, the additional space has truly helped launch Berry College’s theatre program to new heights.

We are truly grateful to everyone who has helped make this happen.”

We recently received some fantastic photos of the finished space, thanks to Seamus Bourne, Clinical Assistant Professor of Theatre at Berry.

Look real close at the second photo and see if you can find the two hinged grid panels. (Hint: If you start in the upper right-hand corner of the photo, you’ll find the first hinged panel in the 3rd column, 2nd row from the top. Count 6 panels back from the first hinged panel to see the second one!)
