Boasting 40,000 square feet of space, this Center also includes a two-story lobby that serves as a separate event space complete with concessions areas. We have a fabulous and elegant auditorium/theater with control room, lighting, sound, and acoustical wall treatments. Also included is a separate Black Box theater with curtained walls and hardwood floors to accommodate various types of events and performances, plus a multi-purpose community room, classrooms, administrative offices and dressing rooms are wonderful additions to our center and can be used for a wide variety of purposes, such as parties, fundraisers, ceremonies and wedding receptions.
