Matt Auditorium at Union High School, built in 1976, is undergoing its first major renovation, with work scheduled to be completed by October 15, 2013, just in time for the first concert of the 2013-2014 school year.

The renovation will include new paint, carpeting, heating and air conditioning systems, auditorium seats and stage curtains. In addition to an improved acoustical ceiling, the old pod walls will be removed, giving the facility a completely new look.

To help offset some of the project’s costs, the school is sponsoring a “Buy A Seat” program. The new auditorium is projected to seat approximately 560 people, up from the current 420. The cost to participate in the program is $150 per seat and donations are tax deductible. Buy a single seat, an entire row, or even an ENTIRE SECTION! Names of those who purchase seats will be displayed on a plaque in the new auditorium.
