Moline High School unveils new Bartlett Performing Arts Center


The Bartlett Performing Arts Center is officially open at Moline High School.

Crews remodeled the 60-year-old auditorium and built a new addition. Upgrades include 800 stadium-style seats, new lighting and music rooms.

Students and teachers helped design the space.

“It’s just great to have the experience to see how they put this all together and that it’s here it’s just unbelievable really,” said Moline High School junior Ben Klocke.

You can see the auditorium for yourself Friday night. Students from the choir, orchestra, band and theater will perform starting at 7 p.m.
