The opening of the Arcadia Performing Arts Center, which anchors the northwest corner of the campus of Arcadia High School, on October 18, 2013, was the realization of a long-standing dream for the citizens of Arcadia to have a major center for arts and culture in the community. This 40,000 square foot, state-of-the-art facility includes a main performance hall with seating for 1,200, a stage that holds 200 musicians, tunable acoustics and professional lighting and sound. In addition, the center boasts an orchestra room with practice rooms and music library, a dance studio with sprung wood floors, a professional stagecraft workshop and a Black Box theater with separate control room and flexible seating that can host 125 guests.
The realization of the Performing Arts Center clearly shows the commitment of the Arcadia community to the arts. With this realization comes the need for another commitment - to the future of the building, arts education and arts programing. The Arcadia Performing Arts Foundation is dedicated to maintaining the Performing Arts Center as a nucleus for the arts, education and engagement where the lives of students and the greater community are enriched. The goal of the Arcadia Performing Arts Foundation is to create an endowment of $10 million that will result in an additional $50,000 or more per year for the Performing Arts Center and the district arts programs. The Arcadia Performing Arts Center is destined to be a world-class venue where lessons are learned, talent is fostered and an impressive array of arts is shared and cultivated.
Mickey Segal, Arcadia Performing Arts Foundation Chairman, said, "We are thrilled to be able to announce our first season, which brings a new level of artistry and entertainment to our community. And we've worked hard to get this ready for sale when we know that people are looking for a unique gift that invests in Arcadia and the performing arts at the holiday season!"
