We went to the Kimmel Center last semester in acoustics class, and
this is exactly what they do.  They have a huge foil on top that they
raise or lower depending on the size of the ensemble.  Now, they also
have huge empty wells on both sides of the auditorium, and if they
need wider reverb they open these huge walls in the auditorium so the
sound can go all around- but I'm guessing that's beyond your means.

I also like the impulse response idea, if nothing else you can learn
from doing it.
The only thing I can add is that if you try delaying the sound at one
end of the room, you can make people feel like the sound is coming
from the other end; then, maybe, they'll move towards that end and get
more direct sound.
