New Scecina stage curtains: A legacy gift from the Class of 1967

Workers from Beck Studios of Cincinnati installed the new front curtains on Scecina's stage.  

A new era opened at Scecina on March 7 when the old stage curtains were replaced with the updated 2019 version. 

The new curtains are a gift from members of Scecina’s Class of 1967. They chose to make the new curtains their legacy project for their 50-year reunion. Scecina Memorial alumni have been creating legacy projects to have a lasting impact and to show their appreciation for their Scecina education and education from the Sisters of St. Francis. 

This legacy project replaced the front curtains and valance and included new curtain tracks, hardware, and new side and back curtains. The old side and back curtains already had been removed several years ago. 

Class of 1967 leaders in this project were: Stan Epperson, Ann (McAtee) Gandolph, Donald Hurrle, Charles Sinclair, Sheila (Murdock) Summers, and Cindy (Werner)Wood. 

The curtains were made and installed by Beck Studios Inc. of Cincinnati, a 162-year-old company that provides custom sewing, theatrical rigging and lighting. 

The new stage curtains were installed just in time for the 2019 Spring Musical, “Once on This Island.” The musical takes the stage at 7 p.m. Friday, March 22, and Saturday, March 23. Click here for more information and for tickets.
