     CORNING (WENY) --  Corning Painted Post High School is ready to 'reveal' its new theater.  And they're doing the unveiling with a special performance, appropriately titled 'Reveal', this Sunday at Corning East.

     It has over 1,000 seats and a brand new state of the art electronic system, including ceiling speakers and a camera that allows performers to know when they should go on stage. More than 400 students from both East and West high schools are performing in Sunday's concert.

     It's the first time students from both schools will be joining together as one group, moving towards the merger next year.

     "I think it's just starting to make the project seem more real," said Michelle Caufield, director of secondary education.  "And from pictures of what it actually looks like now, it's just amazing."

     There will be two shows on Sunday, one at 2:00 pm and another at 4:00 pm.
