Sun Prairie High School Performing Arts Center

Sun Prairie, WI


The Sun Prairie High School Performing Arts Center opened in August of 2010 as part of the new high school. The Performing Arts Center seats 767 on the main floor, plus an additional 272 in the balcony.

Thanks to the use of three traveling curtains and ten various curtains on 23-line fly system, they are able to shape the 50’ wide by 49’ deep stage to feature almost any size group while still having additional free fly lines.

Larger acts can take full advantage of the 2,400 plus square foot performance space whereas groups of any size may choose to take advantage of the orchestra pit or the brand new Wenger Diva acoustical shell system to ensure they get the sound they want from their performance.

From a technological stand point; the Performing Arts Center is first-rate. The lighting system consists of four over stage electrics, a catwalk over the house and box positions on both sides that house over 150 lighting fixtures. All of this is controlled by an ETC Ion light board featuring 1024 outputs as well as the 2×20 fader wing attachment capable of controlling every light individually and storing over 10,000 light cues.
