New auditorium dedicated at Fayette County High

Fayette County High School’s new auditorium is ready for its closeup.

The newly completed building was dedicated during a special ceremony on May 5, attended by Superintendent Joseph Barrow Jr. as well as members of the Board of Education and the fine arts faculty at FCHS. A song by Dr. Johnnie Vinson titled “When Nothing Else Will,” composed especially for the occasion, was performed at the dedication, and a commemorative plaque will be installed at the site. Work on the 575-seat auditorium addition began in July 2017 and lasted 18 months. It cost $7.5 million and was funded by ESPLOST revenue.

The venue will host several theater, chorus and orchestra performances in May, and will be available for rent in the fall on a limited basis.
