Revitalizing the Theatre

Technology Upgrades

Technology upgrades will enhance the theatrical experience and provide students pursuing careers in lighting and audio production the ability to learn and train on state-of-the-art equipment. The scope of the Theatre on the Bay’s technology upgrades includes:


Upgrading the lighting system from floppy-disks to state-of-the-art digital stage and theatre lighting


Updating the sound system to ensure all patrons are able to hear every word of performances and presentations


Adding streaming technology to be able to share theatre programming with wider audiences

Theatre Facelift

An overall theatre facelift, including new flooring, fresh paint, replaced lights and more will ensure the Herbert L. Williams Theatre remains a community mainstay for decades to come.

New Seating & Seat Naming Opportunities

New seating will enhance the comfort of the audience and increase accessibility for patrons with mobility challenges. Naming rights for seats are available from $600 to $1,500 (294 total seats available). Show tickets must be purchased in addition to seat naming pledge.
