South Sioux City Community School District begins $700,000 auditorium upgrade at middle school
Michelle Kuester

Construction began this week on an auditorium renovation project at the South Sioux City Middle School.

The project will cost the district $694,500 and includes a new stage floor, carpet, paint, seating, curtains, and an updated lighting, sound and video system. The project will also include new railings in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act.

The current auditorium was built with the school in 1974 and was “very much in need of a major update,” according to Lance Swanson, the district’s Director of Communication.

“We are excited to renovate and upgrade the middle school auditorium as it is used by the entire district and community for a variety of performances,” Swanson added.

In addition to district wide fine arts performances, the auditorium is used for other community events, most recently New Stage Players theater productions and political debates.

The auditorium upgrades are scheduled to be completed before Thanksgiving to allow for use during December concerts and productions.
