      About the McAninch Arts Center

      Since the center opened in October 1986, its initial season and each of its succeeding 14 have left lasting memories on more than one million audience members.

      The McAninch Arts Center houses three theaters: the 793-seat Mainstage, where no seat is more than 16 rows, or 75 feet, from the stage; Theatre 2, a 195-seat hall featuring a "soft thrust" stage; and the Studio Theatre, a versatile, black-box performance space. Adjacent to the Mainstage lobby is the Gahlberg Gallery, a 90' x 25' space for visual art exhibition.

      The average week in the McAninch Arts Center includes 5.1 public performances of 1.6 arts programs, 2.2 rental events, 10.25 rehearsals and one usage by college departments outside the arts — or 2.5 scheduled events per day, seven days a week, 52 weeks a year. The 1996-97 season included 263 performances of 84 separate plays and concerts, as well as nine art exhibits.
