The new Performing Arts Center’s primary space is a light-filled, curving 500-seat auditorium for weekly student assemblies as well as performance space for music, drama, chorus and dance. Adjoining the auditorium is a two-story rehearsal wing with administrative offices, practice rooms, a glass-walled lobby that also acts as art exhibition space, and a reception room for sit-down dinners. The fan-shaped auditorium follows the natural hillside contours and includes a backstage scene shop, lighting catwalk and audiovisual control booth. By setting careful limits on how money could be most effectively spent, the Center met its budget as a fully-functional performing arts facility while establishing a new architectural standard for future campus buildings.
