BDACT has seized an exciting opportunity to go in a new direction for its building improvement plan. After careful study, it was concluded that purchasing the former St. Patrick School at 117 West Maple Street, with the potential of converting it into a highly satisfactory theater venue hat a reasonable cost, would be a timely and productive decision for the following reasons and apparent comparisons:
- Lower building improvement cost: BDACT's current building improvements projection for 2015: $2,980,000 (4% inflation)/ School building proposal projection for 2015: $2,405,000
- Increased space: BDACT's current building improvement plan -- 15,000 total square feet; school building improvement plan--24,400 total square feet.
- Newer building structure: School built in 1949; BDACT's current building (former church) built in 1912.
- Increased income potential: Seating estimate at the school, including all performance areas after reconstruction--756, with main auditorium seating of 400; seating at the current building after reconstruction 611, with main auditorium seating of 280. (Studio/TAT theater at the reconstructed school will also be larger with more seating.
