Fun Facts About The Norris - The theater features:
-A hydraulically operated orchestra pit that can be raised to one foot above the stage to showcase performers, flush with the stage to expand the stage area, or lower than the stage for its traditional use as an orchestra pit.
-A free-floating floor to give resiliency for dancing. The stained wood surface lies on top of a cushioned padding.
-Enough separately operated flylines to bring in flats, battens, and backdrops for complete sets for even the largest productions.
-Backstage dressing rooms, including a green room for headliners.
