BDACT Renovation Plans of the Former St. Patrick School
For over fifty years, BDACT has developed a solid organization, built on enthusiastic support by thousands of people of all ages. Until about ten years ago, its current home (a converted church with no ground floor access) plus rental of the high school auditorium for summer musicals have been adequate. However, given BDACT's highly increased activity, a new home with more space and access for all is critical. Consequently, BDACT recently purchased a former elementary school at 117 W. Maple Ave. in downtown Beaver Dam, to be reconstructed as a theater center with these and other advantages:
ACCESS FOR ALL
Handicap entrance and lobby, elevator for all three floors.
Current building: 15,000 square feet, built in 1912/ New building: 24,400 square feet, built in 1949 (solid steel and concrete structure).
Current building: 220 seats/New building: 425 seats in the main auditorium, 200+ seats in the Studio/Tell-A-Tale Children's Theatre plus meeting and lobby areas.
(For 15 to 20 BDACT shows per year, tour shows, community rentals) Larger main stage and auditorium with up-to-date technology; orchestra pit; highly serviceable back stage, scene shop, and dressing rooms. Studio theater with portable stage and flexible seating for diverse shows, including Tell-A-Tale Children's Theatre, music ensembles, STAGE II productions, comedy nights, etc.
DANCE REHEARSAL/MUSIC ROOMS
Meeting rooms for fine arts classes and general community use.
For business conferences, weddings, private parties, art exhibits, and other events. A catering kitchen, portable dance floor, and large lobby areas are additional assets.
DOWNTOWN LOCATION WITH IMPROVED PARKING
BDACT will be an activity hub for Beaver Dam and its larger area audience.
