In the spring of 2009 the BVU Theater department and a public relations class were able to raise money to replace the mid-stage curtain in the Old South School Auditorium. This curtain is expected to be hung in time for a middle school musical. With a goal to replace more of the curtains in the auditorium, another campaign is right right around the corner. During the SPAM auction the campaign 'Yard of Grand,' will kick off to replace the Grand Curtain, which is the first curtain that is most recognized for its grand stature in the very front of the stage. During an inspection of the curtains, a stage construction representatie pointed out that this curtain was beginning to tear at the top. Due to many years of use, the Grand is deteroriating and could fall from 'dry rot.' Campaign organizers say it will take approximately 150 yards of fabric to build a new grand curtain, each yard costs $50 a yard.
