Performing Arts Center (PAC): Located at the Biddeford Middle School on Hill Street and Tiger Way. Capacity of 1000. The sound system in the Performing Arts Center is pretty straight-forward–four QSC speakers –one on each top edge of the proscenium and two clustered in center– and a medium-size amplifier that can be used as a subwoofer.  There is a Philips DVD player of fairly good quality in the control booth; there are also VGA inputs on the stage front and in the booth for playing a digital movie file from a computer.  The projection screen is approximately 20′ wide and 16′ high.

The Little Theater: Located at the Biddeford High School, the Little Theater seats 300 and is a cozy space.  There are two speakers flanking the stage at the top of the proscenium; no surround sound, but good acoustics in the hall.  No DVD player but one could be provided and connected to house sound and into the video connection onstage. VGA/ computer hook-up is available for the LCD projector.  The projection screen is approximately 16′ wide and 12′ high. VIEW MAP.a
