Luther Auditorium Opens With ‘The Music Man’ After Major Renovations Completed

By On March 10, 2012

The project started several years ago after a vision was thought of and with the help of parents, grandparents, community members, and the staff of Luther Middle School with at last but not least the Partnership of Warner Bros. Studio Facilities, a new, renovated auditorium is in place.

There is new seating, new lighting, new sound equipment, new spotlights, a refinished stage floor,and almost everything you would find in a BroadwayTheater. The project cost in excess $30,000 and with cookie dough sales, wrapping paper sales and and grants from Burbank Arts for All, as well as other donations, last night the vision was seen when the curtain opened for the opening night of ‘The Music Man’.

The house was packed with Warner Executives and parents and friends alike. The show business term ‘Break A Leg’ means ‘ Good Luck’ on opening night and for every other performance that will be held in the new auditorium.
