Work continues on the Mehlville School District’s new auditorium.

Work is continuing on the Mehlville School District’s new auditorium, which is being constructed on the Mehlville Senior High School campus. The Board of Education selected Wright Construction as the contractor for the $6 million project last October. The 20,300-square-foot auditorium will seat 522 and support a wide range of academic, musical, theatrical and civic events. The new auditorium will have a stage that is 40 feet deep and 44 feet wide, plus two locations for a programmable lighting console, video recording equipment, digital-audio recording capabilities, a high-output projector and a motorized on-stage projection screen. Other features include an 1,800-square-foot lobby, student dressing rooms, a costume storage room and a 1,400-square-foot shop for the construction of scenery.
