We have added to a Steinway grand piano (Model A, 6' 4 1/2") to Barking Legs, and it's available for rental! The piano was built in 1916 and was reportedly once used in the famous Birdland jazz club in NYC.
The Barking Legs Theater provides a venue for new and innovative
performing arts in Chattanooga. We host music events, dance performances,
poetry readings, lectures, films, art exhibits, and live theatre.
The space has a wooden sprung floor measuring 32 X 24 feet and
is 2 1⁄2 inches high. The ceiling height is 12 feet with
a grid measuring 10 from the stage floor. Mirrors line the back
wall and there is a velvet curtain that can be pulled to cover
them if desired. There is a dimmer system with 16 channels and a
PA system available if needed.
The building is handicapped accessible
with three bathrooms. A lobby serves as a concession area. There
are four rows totalling 80 seats with
good visibility and a central spot for a video camera set up.
Barking Legs Theater is located at 1307 Dodds Avenue across from
Associated Fabrics and between McCallie School and Main Street.
There is adequate parking on the side of the building and after hours
across the street.
