West Side High School Opens High Tech Theatre

 
 

LETHBRIDGE: The public got a sneak peak today at Chinook High School's new high tech media centre. The auditorium seats 350 people and will give teachers the option to add multimedia features to their classes, as well as video conferencing options. School principal Clark Bosch told Country 95 News he hasn't seen a facility quite like it.

"They get experience beyond going to the Yates and working with the technician there. They get to set the lights, they get to work the sound board, the light board," said Bosch. "They get to set up the production from both in front of and behind the camera so to speak."

Students launched several performances for visiting dignitaries Friday, but Bosch says they'll need more practice time to launch an official "grand opening." He said they're open to the idea of allowing other groups in the community to use the facility, but it's not in their immediate plan.

Right now, the focus is on the experience it can offer the students. "It's a place where we can have our dramatic productions, it's a place where our choir can perform, it's a place where our dancers can dance, it's a place where the kids can come in and basically get a media centre theatre experience in class," said Bosch. That's something that's very unique.
