  L.3. Contract between Calexico Unified School District and San Diego State University-Imperial Valley Campus for the Rental of Rodney Auditorium for Spring Performances & Rehearsals.
Speaker:
Brisa Huerta-Price
Rationale:
The Calexico High School Theater Company is requesting the use of Rodney auditorium and up to two classrooms for rehearsals leading up to their spring performance. Rehearsal Dates: March 3, 17, 24; April 28 Performance Dates: May 5 & 6 . We would like to use Rodney because of the fact that it is a theater space with all that we need to put on a good performance. Unfortunately, the facilities at Calexico High School aren’t as good as the ones at Rodney. We have performed at Varner before and the acoustics there were less than optimal, which didn’t allow our actors to project their voices, the lighting isn’t as good as Rodney’s lighting, and Varner doesn’t have space for actors, sets, costumes, and other things needed for the production. Rodney’s classrooms are basically connected to the auditorium, allowing for actors and actresses to have separate dressing rooms.
 
Financial Impact:
$3000 to be paid out of ASSETs
