The Performing Arts Center (PAC) provides rehearsal and classroom space for the Theatre Department and performance space for the Theatre and Music Department as well as various campus and off-campus groups. The PAC houses a proscenium-style theatre with continental seating for 330. With only 12 rows, no seat is farther than 40 feet from the stage. The acoustics are excellent in this modern venue. The 40-foot wide stage allows for intimate box sets, full-scale musicals, even opera and ballet. Three theater department productions are staged here each season along with multiple music concerts and recitals. The front (apron) portion of the stage can be lowered to accommodate a full orchestra for musicals. Also the stage is equipped with 31 counterweight linesets that allow scenery, curtains, and lighting to be rigged, raised and lowered easily.
