The Roanoke Island Historical Association is grateful to the Outer Banks Community Foundation for funding the purchase of new audio equipment and digital technology upgrades for the Waterside Theatre this season with a $5,000 grant. This equipment included an additional 12 microphone transmitters and receivers for key characters in the performance, digital antennas, and the replacement of a digital signal processor.
Funding from the Outer Banks Community Foundation helped the Roanoke Island Historical Association complete the Sound Project at the Waterside Theatre, a three-year project begun in 2014. The new digital sound and audio equipment has produced amazing results which include clearer audio and realistic and exciting sound effects through-out the performance. If you have not attended a performance this year, we urge you to come out and enjoy a night at the Waterside Theatre before the 80th Anniversary Season ends on August 19th.
