Once again, a proposal to change plans for the Opera House

Mayor Rickie Pratt plans to propose – again – that plans for the Opera House renovation include a basement area for storage and an orchestra pit. City Manager Wayne McKethan said the matter will be on the Tuesday, Dec. 11, City Council meeting agenda. The project has already seen lengthy delays, and Pratt’s proposal could delay the theater’s opening by another three months. On the other hand, he has years of experience in the theater industry, and McKethan said the change might actually save the city a modest amount.
