Welcome to our Living Room

What happens in a living room? Shared experience and critical conversation. At The Performing Arts Center, we provide experiences that inspire, engage, spark conversations, and make connections; creating a welcoming community hub for an increasingly diverse audience base.

Born of this unprecedented time, The PAC in Your Living Room initiative encompasses a broad range of efforts by The PAC to develop innovative ways to deliver programming directly to you at home, in your very own living room. (Click on each headline to learn more)
