The 21,000 square foot Performing Arts Center Addition to Hudson High School provides the district with a professional-class performing arts center.
Before entering the 750-seat auditorium, students and guests can be greeted from a trumpet balcony located directly above the exterior entrance. Upon entering, attention is drawn to the focal point of the auditorium: the oak-framed stage featuring both side and balcony stages. An elevated control booth is located at the back of the auditorium.
An orchestra pit allows full, simultaneous expression from the school's music and drama programs. The pit, covered when not is use, also gives speakers the space needed to move closer to the audience, and allows more intimate gatherings in the auditorium.
The addition provides several areas to support the auditorium, including a scene shop, dressing rooms, band and chorus classrooms, practice rooms, offices for school faculty, and storage.
