This Performing Arts Center Resident Artist Team consists of community music, theatre, and dance producers who keep the facility busy year-round. It also serves touring artists, non-profits, for profits, and individuals as space permits.
The PAC has two performances spaces, the Alice Silverman Theatre and the Studio Theatre. The Silverman is a 398-seat, proscenium, stage theatre with a full range of technical capabilities. The Studio is a black box space which can be arranged to seat up to 80.
