The Muppet Movie, produced in 1979, follows Kermit and his Muppet friends on a journey across America to find success in Hollywood and includes the memorable, original songs such as "Rainbow Connection," and "Movin' Right Along." The opening of the Arcadia Performing Arts Center, which anchors the northwest corner of the campus of Arcadia High School, on October 18, 2012, 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 1,150, 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 programming. 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 Arcadia Performing Arts Foundation has currently set a fundraising goal $10 million that will result in an endowment to provide regular funding for the Performing Arts Center and the district arts programs. The Arcadia Performing Arts Center provides a first-class venue for the San Gabriel Valley where the public can enjoy major concert and performing arts attractions, and where student talent can be fostered and supported with a venue for their work.
