This 34,000sf, $20M facility at Matanuska-Susitna College is the first new building to open on UAA’s Palmer campus since 2003 and was a decade in planning. The building opened in February, 2015 and provides dressing rooms, costume shop, green room (doubles as a conference area), loading dock and scene shop for construction and storage occupy the area behind the stage. Most lights are LED, permitting easy color and mood changes from the light booth. The audience
