While audiences were captivated by what was happening on the stage, Wireworks Corporation, the leading innovator of audio/video cabling systems, was behind the scenes taking center stage in upgrading the theater’s sound system, with both multi-channel and custom cable assemblies as well as Wireworks specially manufactured custom panels working as audio connection points for the entire sound system.

This was no easy task considering the 10-month renovation of the 80-year-old, 1,226 seat performance and theatrical auditorium, which is also home to the Missouri Symphony Orchestra, went well beyond installing a new state-of-the-art audio system. It also included restored lighting, a new scenic design shop, a Columbia Art League Gallery, an expanded Grand Foyer, and the new Missouri Theatre Lounge on the mezzanine level. more
