BERNARD, Ohio -- Some schools across the country are cutting back on their fine arts programs, but Roger Bacon High School in St. Bernard is investing in theirs. The Catholic high school raised almost $2 million through alumni to renovate the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s original gymnasium in the center of the building, which was built in 1928, into a modern theater. Under construction since June 2015, the newly
opened Carol Dauwe Fine Arts Center has permanent seating for 317 people and space for an additional 200 floor seats surrounding a thrust stage. The facility also features new lighting, sound and video systems. Become a WCPO Insider to learn more about the other upgrades made to Roger Bacon High School. Already an Insider?
