Performing Arts Center




The Performing Arts Center is a 55,000 square foot facility consisting of three separate concert halls. The Larson Memorial Concert Hall serves as a beautiful acoustic dream for concerts and events. The Fishback Studio Theatre is where great stage theatre happens, as well as creating future theatre actors. The Roberts Reception Hall is an ideal space for banquets and other programs. The Performing Arts Center is a magnificent location for events, lectures, concerts and more, available to the campus and local community. The Performing Arts Center (PAC) also includes a private Green Room, two dressing rooms, make-up rooms and a rehearsal space with a pull-away wall. In addition, new changes are on the way for the PAC. Construction has begun and intends to expand the facility in numerous ways, including adding a full-scale professional caliber proscenium theatre and large rehearsal spaces for bands, orchestra, and choir, just to name a few. Learn more about the PAC Expansion and why it's important for our community.
