The Stanley Theater in Utica is getting an upgrade to its sound system.

Broadway Utica has gifted the Stanley with a new $45,000 cluster speaker system.

The system replaces an outdated sound system that weighed more than 2.500 pounds. The new system is lightweight and can be relocated with ease when needed.

Broadway Utica's Executive Director Derek Clark says the the new speaker system will not only benefit Broadway Utica patrons, but the entire community.

"The Stanley has enjoyed a long term relationship with Broadway Utica and over the years, Broadway Utica has made numerous significant contributions to the Stanley. These contributions are greatly appreciated. There is no doubt the new speaker cluster will enhance the quality of the sound to be enjoyed by all patrons attending events at the Stanley." said Kurt Pearsall, from The Stanley.
