About the Performing Arts Center

The Performing Arts Center has a rich history of hosting vibrant live concerts, captivating theater productions, and enlightening guest speakers. Situated at 1 Tiger Lane in Warsaw, Indiana, this venue serves as an extension of Warsaw Community High School.

Established in 2007, the center boasts a modern auditorium and a versatile black box theatre, complemented by a range of teaching spaces, dressing rooms, makeup areas, practice facilities, and an inviting rotunda and lobby.

With seating for 974 attendees, including a spacious balcony, our main auditorium is wheelchair accessible and features an orchestra pit, facilitating flexible stage setups (orchestra level, house, and stage). Enhanced by wood acoustical paneled walls, the auditorium guarantees an exceptional auditory experience for every production.

Our main stage spans nearly 80 feet in width and 37 feet in depth, supplemented by an extra 10 feet of apron space, providing ample room for performances of all kinds.

The Black Box Theatre in the PAC offers an intimate setting for theatrical productions or performances. It can seat up to 100 guests and can be arranged in various configurations, including in-the-round setups. This space is perfect for cabaret or revue performances.

Both of our performance spaces, the Main Auditorium and the Black Box Theatre, are equipped with comprehensive technical amenities, featuring state-of-the-art lighting and sound systems. Additionally, you'll benefit from the expertise and experience of our on-site Technical Director, who brings years of knowledge and insight to ensure the seamless execution of your production.

We can also offer the convenience of managing your ticket sales through our online ticketing portal. Alternatively, you have the option to utilize your preferred ticketing provider.

But, the Warsaw Performing Arts Center goes beyond traditional performance spaces, providing versatile rooms that cater to a variety of events. Whether it's business meetings, receptions, wedding ceremonies, family movie nights, concerts, or other gatherings, our venue offers the flexibility to accommodate your needs.
