As Clemson University students and faculty pause for spring break, their primary performance space is getting a spring cleaning. The Brooks Theatre will again open its doors to the public on Monday, March 25, 2019. The reopening was announced three weeks after the discovery of several bats in the building, which led to a cautionary closing of the theater.
Clemson University Facilities and private pest-control experts are working to make sure the bats that caused the Brooks Center for the Performing Arts to cancel performances will go away and stay away. The maintenance staff has installed an “excluder” – a device that allows bats to leave a building but not return – at a small gap in an outside wall where about 20 bats were seen entering. Since two bats were first sighted at Brooks Feb. 27, the maintenance team has worked to humanely remove bats from the building and seal any entry points.
